Industry Unites to Solve Livestock Problems

The Scottish agricultural industry has joined forces to address the various livestock problems caused by Foot and Mouth disease.

NFU Scotland and other industry bodies* have joined forces to write a letter to Richard Lochhead MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Environment, outlining what is required of Defra and the UK Government on the key issues affecting the industry. Currently, there is the need for a livestock welfare scheme for animals with no market and extremely limited grazing, as well as a need for temporarily relaxed driver hours for the haulage sector.
