Animal health and welfare
The aim of this handbook is to provide cattle farmers with information and advice on six disease.
The Welsh Government is responsible for the control and, where possible, the eradication of animal disease in Wales to improve the health and welfare of our animals.
The health and welfare of animals is important to all of us, not just animal livestock owners or government. Disease outbreaks and the measures to control them can carry wide and costly consequences for public health, the economy and the environment. The way we treat animals is an important reflection of the values of our society. This means that we all have a stake in improving the national level of animal health and welfare.
We seek to secure lasting improvements in the agriculture sector by:
- protecting and improving the quality of Welsh stock
- controlling and eradicating diseases
Therefore providing a secure future for farmers in Wales. We also take action to prevent disease getting into the food chain by:
- monitoring animal movements
- veterinary surveillance
- ensuring that animals or meat from infected areas are not imported into Wales
