Home Slaughter

April 2015
This information is for:
  • Keepers of animals who slaughter livestock1 on farm2 for their own consumption or that of members of their household living there.
  • Local Authorities which are responsible for the enforcement of Animal Welfare, Food Hygiene and Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSE) Regulations on farms.

1 The Guide is not intended to cover all livestock species but it does cover those species for which we receive most enquiries and is therefore particularly applicable to the following: cattle, sheep and goats where TSE controls apply.
2 For the purposes of this guide, ‘farm’ is defined as any premises where livestock is kept.
