Livestock disease importation
  1. PE Curtis


The more liberal British policy, post-1969, on livestock importation has permitted increased importation of pedigree livestock. Diseases have also been introduced. Since 1968 14 diseases, two of them new conditions, have been introduced by live animals, waste food or wild birds. Although six of these diseases have been eradicated others remain to be controlled by governmental or voluntary action. The implications of this situation are briefly discussed and a review of current policy is advocated.
