I am looking at a piece of ground to set up a new red deer herd, that has had deer on it previously which at some point relatively recently was found to have tb. The ground has been empty since march.
What i want to know and can't find out, despite trawling AHVLA, defra etc websites is how does it affect the movement of live deer for sale if i was to establish a new herd. Would the new herd be automatically subject to testing because of the prior case?
It seems that a license to move anything anywhere is needed from AHVLA or can only be moved from one tb restricted area to a similar or greater risk area. I was under the impression that things could only leave dead and if the level of infection/lesions etc was minimal could enter the food chain.
Any information would be greatly appreciated
