The Importance of Proper Fallen Stock Disposal

Farmers in Bebington are legally responsible for the disposal of their fallen stock. On-farm burial has been banned in Bebington since 2003 to protect public health and the environment. In fact, EU control regulations state in Article 21 that fallen stock must be collected, identified, and transported without “undue delay.” This means that timely and efficient removal of fallen stock is not just a good practice but a legal requirement.

Why Choose Martlands for Fallen Stock Collection in Bebington?

The livestock industry in Bebington can be very confident in its ability to dispose of waste safely and sustainably by using experts like Martlands to manage its fallen stock. Here’s why choosing Martlands ensures compliance with all your responsibilities under UK law:

Expertise and Certification

Martlands is a DEFRA-approved licensed sampling centre. We are fully equipped to undertake TSE (Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies) brain stem testing of adult cattle over 48 months old. Our team is trained to handle all aspects of fallen stock collection and disposal, ensuring that every step complies with regulatory standards.

Prompt Service

We understand the urgency involved in dealing with fallen stock. That’s why we guarantee collection within 24 hours of notification. This prompt service helps mitigate any potential health risks associated with delayed removal.

Comprehensive Testing

Once we collect the animal from your farm in Bebington, we remove the brain stem for TSE testing. Samples are then sent from Bebington to the Veterinary Laboratories Agency (VLA) in Newcastle for analysis. This thorough testing process ensures that any potential diseases are identified quickly.

Environmentally Responsible Disposal

All carcasses collected by Martlands are disposed of through rendering and incineration methods approved by DEFRA. These methods ensure that no harmful pathogens enter the environment, thereby protecting both public health and local ecosystems.

Legal Obligations for Farmers

Farmers must comply with several legal obligations when it comes to disposing of fallen stock:

  1. Timely Removal: As mentioned earlier, EU regulations require that fallen stock be collected without undue delay.
  2. Proper Identification: All animals must be properly identified before they can be transported.
  3. Approved Disposal Methods: On-farm burial is not allowed; farmers must use approved services like Martlands for rendering or incineration.

By partnering with us at Martlands, farmers can rest assured they are meeting all these legal requirements efficiently and effectively.

The Risks of Non-Compliance

Failing to comply with regulations regarding fallen stock disposal can have serious consequences:

  • Health Risks: Delayed or improper disposal can lead to outbreaks of disease among livestock as well as humans.
  • Environmental Damage: Incorrect disposal methods can contaminate soil and water sources.
  • Legal Penalties: Non-compliance could result in hefty fines or other legal actions against farmers.

Using a reliable service like Martlands mitigates these risks significantly.
