UFU arrange meeting for those involved in proposed badger sett survey

THE Ulster Farmers’ Union is holding a meeting on Thursday 14 February 2013 for any farmer or landowner involved in the proposed 100km2 geographically targeted preliminary badger sett survey which was announced by Agriculture Minister Michelle O’Neill last week.

The UFU have invited DARD’s head of TB and BR policy to speak to the farmers and landowners involved in the proposed sett survey work and explain what it will entail.

UFU president Harry Sinclair said: “600 farmers in the Banbridge and Rathfriland area of Co Down should have already received letters from DARD seeking agreement for AFBI staff to carry out the sett survey work on their land. It is vital that the permission slips attached to these letters are signed and returned as quickly as possible.
