star this property answer text <p>The UK has robust measures and guidance to protect against the introduction of exotic diseases such as African swine fever (ASF). These measures include import bans on livestock and products of animal origin from high risk areas, a movement standstill regime and ban on swill feeding to pigs.</p><p> </p><p>The International Disease Monitoring team regularly assess the changing global animal disease presence and its potential risk to the UK. The most recent assessment was made on June 2019. These ASF assessments are published on the<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/animal-diseases-international-monitoring#outbreak-assessments-2019" target="_blank"> gov.uk</a> website.</p><p> </p><p>There is existing legislation which requires the cleansing and disinfection of any vehicles used to transport livestock. Local Authorities are responsible for enforcement and have powers to take action if they believe an operator has not complied with these regulations.</p><p> </p><p>A Government led campaign is currently running to raise awareness of the increased risk of ASF and measures that individuals can take to avoid the accidental introduction of disease. The UK Chief Veterinary Officer has also endorsed the National Pig Association’s #MuckFreeTruck campaign.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Clean Air Strategy was published in January 2019 and sets out the actions the Government will take to reduce ammonia emissions from farming in line with our clean air targets. Those that are relevant to dairy and beef farming include:</p><p>- Regulating to reduce emissions from urea based fertilisers.</p><p>- Introducing legislation requiring use of low emissions spreading techniques by 2025.</p><p>- Extending environmental permitting to the dairy and intensive beef sectors by 2025.</p><p>- Regulation to require slurry and digestate stores to be covered by 2027.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to these regulatory measures, the Government is providing technical and financial support for farmers to change management practices and invest in equipment to reduce ammonia emissions. For example:</p><p>- The Government is delivering a £3 million programme of support to farmers over three years showcasing low emission spreading equipment and providing advice on practical ammonia mitigation methods.</p><p> </p><p>- Last year we published a code of good agricultural practice which provides guidance to farmers on how to reduce ammonia emissions.</p><p> </p><p>- We have supported farmers to invest in low emissions slurry spreading equipment and slurry store covers through grant schemes such as the Farming Ammonia Reduction Grant, the Countryside Stewardship scheme and the Countryside Productivity scheme. A second round of the Rural Development Programme for England’s Countryside Productivity small grant scheme is expected to be launched very shortly.</p>
