Birthing season on any farm can be an often hard and time-consuming time that requires around the clock monitoring and work. This period often results in a large amount of fallen stock that must be handled correctly to ensure the protection of biosecurity throughout the farm.
All animal fallen stock must be collected, identified and transported (or destroyed) without ‘undue delay’ as per the guidelines set out in Article 21 of the EU Control Regulation. Incineration is the cleanest and most bio-secure option available at this time according to DEFRA, DAERA and the EU. Adhering to these guidelines will benefit you and also protect neighbouring farms and even the farming industry in general.
For an incinerator to be used legally within the UK it must be listed in the 'Approved ABP Incinerator List'. If you’re only incinerating animal by-products (ABPs) and not a mix of ABPs and other materials, you must get Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) approval. Full details of the application process can be found on the DEFRA website. Most of our Agricultural range are DEFRA type approved.
Incineration is seen as the preferred method of fallen livestock disposal – it is still the most effective, bio-secure and efficient method and is used by millions of farmers around the world.
Storing of carcasses for any extended period of time can increase the risk of disease and infection. This attracts vermin and insects which will multiply if left. Simply incinerating the carcasses on the same day will reduce any potential of infection almost completely.
Our range of DEFRA approved incinerators cater for all types of livestock, we offer a range of small incinerators for sheep, poultry and other small animals. Our larger models can be used for large livestock (cattle disposal, equine disposal, camel disposal) or high volumes of smaller carcasses.
Disposing safely of fallen stock is just one benefit of owning your own incinerator. Many successful farmers in the UK and overseas currently run one of our incinerators and have successfully reduced their waste disposal costs. Waste collection fees have seen huge increases over the past 18 months and can be taking a big slice off the overall profit margins.
On top of the potential cost saving created, you can even use the heat generated from burning your waste to heat your lambing sheds, stables or other farm buildings.
Our innovative combustion chamber design and construction lend themselves to the contained processing of fallen stock. Many competitors’ systems struggle to cope with the high moisture content of fallen stock and you may experience leakages through the refractory seams or brick joints. Our custom cast refractories have no joints or gaps where leakage could occur ensuring everything is kept and combusted thoroughly.
All our animal incinerators are DEFRA approved and comply with EU Animal By-Products Regulation (ABPR), (EC) No 142/2011.
All our incinerators are supplied fully serviced and ready to run, backed by our 1-year/1,000 hour warranty and global after-sales specialist support. So if you need a reliable, proven and efficient fallen livestock incinerator, our range will surely have one model that will meet your waste needs.
Our friendly and knowledgeable sales team will assist you step by step through the processes, understanding your needs and specifying the optimal solution for your project or waste streams.
