Annual health and welfare review of livestock
Farmers who keep cattle, sheep and pigs can get funding to pay for a vet to visit their farm and carry out an annual health and welfare review.
A health and welfare review of livestock provides funding for a vet, or team chosen by a vet, to visit a farm and carry out a health and welfare review of beef or dairy cattle, sheep or pigs.
The review will help:
- reduce endemic diseases and conditions
- increase animal productivity
- improve animal welfare
The review is optional. It is not an inspection and will not be used for compliance or monitoring.
