Animal Welfare on Farm

For all cattle farmers, and indeed all livestock farmers in general, the conditions animals are kept in on farm, the use of veterinary medicines, the registration of animals and the testing for diseases can all come under scrutiny.

Animal welfare is high on the political agenda and this often results in actions taken by the relevant government bodies against farmers. This can be in the form of enforcement notices or interviews under caution for alleged breaches of the law.

Our recognised experts can help with challenging actions taken by regulatory bodies such as the Food Standards Agency, Trading Standards, DEFRA, APHA and the Environment Agency. This could take the form of writing a formal letter, making an appeal to the Magistrates’ Court or Tribunal, challenging a decision by way of Judicial Review in the High Court, assisting with the preparation of a response to an interview under caution or representing and advising you during a prosecution in the Court.
