Legal Responsibilities for Farmers in Broughton

Farmers in Broughton are legally responsible for the disposal of their fallen stock. On-farm burial is banned in Broughton and has been since 2003 to protect health. In fact, the EU Control Regulations state in Article 21 that Broughton fallen stock must be collected, identified, and transported without ‘undue delay’.

Why On-Farm Burial is Prohibited

The prohibition of on-farm burial aims to prevent the spread of disease and contamination of soil and water sources. Improper disposal methods can lead to severe environmental hazards and health risks for both humans and animals.

The Role of Martlands in Fallen Stock Collection

The Broughton livestock industry can be very confident in its ability to dispose of waste safely and sustainably by using experts like Martlands to manage its fallen stock. This ensures compliance with all responsibilities under UK law.

DEFRA-Approved Services

Martlands Fallen Stock Collection in Broughton is a DEFRA-approved licensed sampling centre. We undertake TSE (Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies) brain stem testing of adult cattle (over 48 months old). This rigorous testing process ensures that any potential risks are identified early on.

Quick Response Time

We understand the urgency involved in dealing with fallen stock. Therefore, we ensure that we can collect the animal from Broughton within 24 hours of you notifying us. This quick response time helps mitigate any potential health risks associated with delayed disposal.

The Process: From Collection to Disposal

When you contact Martlands for your fallen stock collection needs in Broughton, here’s what happens:

  1. Notification: You notify us about the fallen stock.
  2. Collection: We arrive at your location within 24 hours.
  3. Sampling: The brain stem is removed from adult cattle over 48 months old.
  4. Testing: Samples are sent from Broughton to the VLA (Veterinary Laboratories Agency) in Newcastle.
  5. Disposal: All carcasses are disposed of by rendering and incineration.

Rendering and Incineration

Rendering involves heating waste animal tissue into stable, usable materials such as fats and proteins. Incineration ensures the complete destruction of potentially harmful pathogens, making it one of the safest methods for disposing of animal remains.
