Advice for pig farmers caught up in bird flu restrictions
19th Dec 2016 / By Alistair Driver
A number of pig units have been caught up in restrictions imposed in Lincolnshire, following confirmation of bird flu in the county.
Full details of the restrictions can be seen here.
While most of the restrictions accompanying the zones apply to poultry, keepers of other farm animals are affected.
Movements of poultry, other captive birds or mammals from or to premises in the zones where poultry or other captive birds are kept are only allowed under licence issued by a veterinary inspector. (This does not apply to pets where it can be shown they no contact with poultry on the premises).
If you are caught up in the restrictions and have any queries, contact us via the NPA email
