1372: Governance of livestock disease

This paper is summarised from Rural Economy and Land Use Policy and Practice Notes 34 ‘The governance of livestock disease: putting epidemiology in context

Year of Publication2011

Livestock sellers should have to make buyers aware of any known risks of possible infection in their herds. Flows of animals, information, money and disease among farms should be monitored in order to identify emergent problems and balance the effectiveness and proportionality of policy interventions. Regulation should be explicitly based on Better Regulation Principles. The Animal Health and Welfare Board for England needs to apply a systematic framework for risk and cost sharing. Stakeholders must be engaged in the development of this framework and public support will have to be engendered.
