NFU to help north west poultry farmers

UK - Preparations are well underway at the NFU to help north west poultry farmers deal with yet another change to the way their industry is regulated.

Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) regulations will change much of major industry, including intensive agriculture - especially larger poultry units. The regulations are designed to prevent, reduce and eliminate pollution at source through the efficient use of natural resources.

IPPC covers emissions to air, land and water in addition to noise and vibration, energy efficiency, waste minimisation, environmental accidents and site protection.

Farms requiring a permit are those with more than 40,000 poultry. Permits must be applied for between November 1, 2006 and January 31, 2007.

The NFU is holding a series of information meetings for its members who fall into this category and will have to make business decisions based on this new legislation.
