The Legal Responsibility for Farmers in Flint

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

Why On-Farm Burial is Banned

The ban on on-farm burial was introduced to mitigate health risks associated with decomposing animal carcasses. These risks include contamination of water supplies and the spread of diseases among livestock and, potentially, humans. Therefore, proper disposal methods are a legal requirement and a crucial aspect of maintaining public health standards.

The Importance of Using Approved Services

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

Compliance with Regulations

Using an approved service like Martlands ensures that all legal requirements are met efficiently. Our services are designed to comply fully with DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) guidelines and other relevant regulations.

Martlands – Your Trusted Partner for Fallen Stock Collection in Flint

Martlands Fallen Stock Collection Flint is a DEFRA-approved licensed sampling centre. We offer comprehensive services, including TSE (Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies) brain stem testing of adult cattle (over 48 months old).

Quick Response Time

We can collect the animal from Flint within 24 hours of you notifying us. This quick response time ensures minimal disruption to your farming operations and helps maintain hygiene standards on your farm.

Detailed Testing Procedures

The brain stem is removed, and samples are taken and sent from Flint to the VLA (Veterinary Laboratories Agency) in Newcastle for further analysis. This rigorous testing procedure ensures that any potential health risks are identified promptly.

Sustainable Disposal Methods

All Flint carcasses collected by Martlands are disposed of through rendering and incineration methods.

Rendering Process

Rendering involves converting waste animal tissue into stable, usable materials like tallow or meat-and-bone meal through processes such as grinding, cooking, separating fat from bone and protein, drying the remaining material, and grinding it into powder form.

Incineration Process

Incineration involves burning animal carcasses at high temperatures until they turn into ash. This method effectively eliminates pathogens and significantly reduces waste volume.
