Caring for your animals
provides a range of advice on good practice and guidance on complying with the law for livestock keepers.
Regulations covering the identification and traceability of livestock are integral to disease control, whilst good welfare practices help protect the health and wellbeing on farmed animals. Importantly both help maintain consumer confidence in farm produce.
The keeping of some species of birds and the commercial use of certain endangered species is controlled. See our Endangered Species pages for more information.
