Regarding Horse Sale on the 30th of June 2016
Further to enquiries regarding an outbreak of strangles in the area.
After meetings with Directors and local veterinary practices.
We can now confirm that the Horse Sale will go ahead and that disinfection posts will be available on all entries and exits to the mart premises.
As regard the Foot and Mouth epidemic the horse sales still took place as the local authority and DEFRA allowed it.
We hope this now clarifies the situation.
