Indeed, the EU Control Regulations says in Article 21 that Oxfordshire fallen stock must be collected, identified and transported without ‘undue delay’. This means Oxfordshire fallen stock collection must be dealt with quickly and our Oxfordshire Fallen Stock Collection service does just that. We safely and efficiently collect the carcass from its location in Oxfordshire and deal with it.
