Feedback from the abattoir - essential for on-farm health control

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


Almost one billion animals are slaughtered in the UK every year. The vast majority
of these are poultry and around 30 million are red meat – cattle, sheep/lambs and
pigs (Defra, 2015a, 2015b). All animals are inspected – both ante-mortem and post-
mortem – according to requirements laid down in both UK and European legislation
(European Parliament and Council, 2004). The same legislation also prescribes that
any information about findings should be fed back to both the farmer and their
veterinary surgeon, especially if conditions are found that reflect on public health or
animal health.
