Deeside Fallen Stock Collection Service

Martlands
Widnes Fallen Stock Collection

Farming is a demanding profession that requires meticulous attention to detail, especially when it comes to the health and well-being of livestock. Unfortunately, there are times when animals pass away due to illness or accidents. In such cases, farmers in Deeside are legally responsible for the proper disposal of fallen stock. This is where Martland’s Deeside Fallen Stock Collectors come into play. We are collectors and registered disposers of fallen stock and casualty animals with the Fallen Stock Company. Whether you need our Deeside fallen stock collection service on an ad-hoc basis or under a long-term contract, Martland’s will help you.

Legal Responsibilities for Farmers in Deeside

Farmers in Deeside are legally responsible for disposing of their own fallen stock. Since 2003, on-farm burial has been banned to protect human and animal health. Article 21 of the EU Control Regulations mandates that fallen stock must be collected, identified, and transported without any “undue delay.” This means that fallen stock collection must be dealt with as soon as reasonably possible.

Why Timely Collection is Crucial

The timely collection is not just a legal requirement but also essential for maintaining farm hygiene and preventing the spread of diseases. Delayed removal can lead to contamination of soil and water sources, posing severe risks to other livestock and even humans.

Our Services – Safe and Efficient Collection

At Martland’s Deeside Fallen Stock Collectors, we understand the urgency involved in dealing with fallen stock. Our team will safely and efficiently collect the carcass from its location in Deeside and handle all aspects of its disposal.

Specialised Services for Cattle Over 48 Months

Specific regulations require that cattle over 48 months old be collected from Deeside and samples taken by an approved TSE (Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies) sampling site within 24 hours of the animal’s death. We ensure compliance with these regulations by offering specialised services tailored to meet these stringent requirements.

DEFRA-Approved Sampling Centre

Martland’s Fallen Stock Collection in Deeside is DEFRA-approved as a licensed sampling centre for TSE brain stem testing – which is required for fallen adult cattle over four years old. This approval ensures that we meet all regulatory standards for safe and effective disposal.

Importance of TSE Testing

TSEs are a group of progressive conditions affecting the brain and nervous system of many animals, including cattle. The most well-known form is Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad cow disease. Testing ensures that any potential risk is identified early, protecting both public health and other livestock.

Flexible Service Options – Ad-Hoc or Long-Term Contracts

We understand that each farm has unique needs when it comes to fallen stock collection. That’s why we offer flexible service options:

  • Ad-Hoc Basis: Ideal for smaller farms or those who experience infrequent incidents.
  • Long-Term Contracts: Perfect for larger farms requiring regular collection services.

Benefits of Long-Term Contracts

Opting for a long-term contract offers several advantages:

  • Cost Efficiency: Regular services often come at discounted rates.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have a reliable partner ready to assist at any time.
  • Compliance Assurance: Regular collections ensure ongoing compliance with legal requirements.
