A Tyrone farmer has been convicted on one charge of failing to notify the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) of the birth of an animal, one charge of failing to keep a herd register and one charge of providing false information.

John Patrick Cassidy, of Glencull Road, Ballygawley, was fined £750 plus £31 costs today (Monday) at Dungannon Magistrates’ Court.

The case arose from a number of discrepancies found at a cattle identification inspection carried out by Veterinary Service Enforcement Branch.
