clarification of movement regulations
« on: November 05, 2012, 11:11:31 pm »
There was a discussion going on in the kitchen this evening between fellow pig keepers and ourselves regarding borrowing a boar.
They were looking to borrow a boar but also had pigs going to slaughter next week.  The questions were that although they were aware that the boar coming onto their holding triggers a standstill are you still allowed to take others straight to slaughter during this period?
Answers please as there is a pint or two at stake here! :thinking:

Kja is correct, you can always take beasts directly to slaughter during standstill. Hope that makes logistics easier! :thumbsup:

Aye movements direct to slaughter are unaffected by the standstill.

It comes under The Disease Control (England) Order 2003  orThe Disease Control (Wales) Order 2003.  Part 2 article 6 permits moves during  standstill viz :
Notwithstanding articles 4 and 5, animals may be moved off premises during the standstill period if
(a)the movement is one specified in Schedule 1;......
Schedule 1 permits
 Movement for slaughter 2. The movement of an animal direct to a slaughterhouse.
3. The movement of a pig to a market for pigs intended for immediate slaughter.
Can't directly quote the equivalent scottish reg
So yes you can !
