Staffordshire Fallen Stock Collection
Farmers in Staffordshire are responsible in law for the disposal of their fallen stock. On-farm burial is banned in Staffordshire and has been since 2003 – this is to protect health. Indeed, the EU Control Regulations says in Article 21 that Staffordshire fallen stock must be collected, identified and transported without ‘undue delay’. This means Staffordshire fallen stock collection must be dealt with quickly and our Staffordshire Farm Stock Collection service does just that. We safely and efficiently collect the carcass from its location in Staffordshire and deal with it. Where Staffordshire cattle over 48 months are concerned, they must be collected from Staffordshire and samples must be taken by a Staffordshire TSE sampling site within a day of the animal’s death.
