Health and Safety & Animal Welfare LawFarmers are accountable for virtually every aspect of their business.
The involvement of statutory agencies, some of which have little regard for the practicalities of farming, has meant that farmers are accountable for virtually every aspect of their business. Not only does a breach of the regulations risk a fine, imprisonment and a ban on keeping livestock, but future EU support payments (which can make the difference between profit and loss for many farmers) may be stopped.
Any threat of action must therefore be taken very seriously. Our specialist team of agricultural law solicitors can advise on possible defences, representation at interview and, if appropriate, penalties and the scope of insurance.
For further information on health and safety or animal welfare law please contact Tim Howells, Agricultural Law solicitor today on 01823 446201 or submit an online enquiry and we'll call you back as soon as possible.
