NFU to Prepare Cheshire Farmers for More Changes in Beef Market

UK - Uncertainty once again surrounds the Cheshire farming industry as it enters yet another period of change now that cattle over thirty months old is allowed back into the food chain. Following the BSE scare of 1996, the Government brought in the Over Thirty Months (OTM) rule that permanently excluded all cattle born before August 1 1996 from the food and feed chain. The Over Thirty Months Scheme (OTMS) was then introduced to provide an outlet for cattle that could no longer enter these chains due to the rule.
