§ Mr. Morley
The Animal By-Products Order 1999 (as amended) imposes strict controls that require animal by-products to be treated or disposed of safely and without undue delay. It also makes it an offence (other livestock feed controls notwithstanding) to allow ruminant animals, pigs or poultry to have access to any unrendered animal by-products. Similar controls will12W apply under the new EU Animal By-Products Regulation. Under separate food hygiene legislation, farmers are required to protect foodstuffs stored on farm from contamination.
