Veterinary Call-Out and TB Testing Charges Survey

IFA Animal Health Committee Chairman Pat Farrell said a National Survey carried out by the IFA Animal Health Committee of the charges for TB testing and veterinary call out fees highlighted huge differences in the fees being charged.  Pat Farrell said TB testing rates range from 3.00 to €5.33 per animal, a difference of €233 in 100 animals.  He said some vets charging the lowest per head rate for testing did not charge a call out fee worth an average of €55.49 in savings.  The IFA Chairman reminded farmers it is their choice which vet they employ to carry out their annual TB test.

The IFA Chairman said a survey of veterinary call out fees also identified huge differences in the fees being charged.  He said the day time call out fee ranges from €35.00 to €68.10 with the night time rate ranging from €35.00 to €113.50 per call.

FALLEN ANIMALS SURVEY

Commenting on the results of an extensive national survey carried out by IFA into the costs of Fallen Animal collection, IFA Animal Health Chairman Pat Farrell said the charges some farmers continue to be exposed to in order to have their fallen animals disposed of are unacceptable.

The IFA Chairman said it is very evident from the results of the survey that farmers in areas where real competition exists between knackeries are able to avail of much lower charges.

He said IFA has proposed changes to the knackery licencing system that would ensure all farmers have access to a competitively priced fallen animal disposal service.  It is incumbent on the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed and his officials to ensure this is provided.

Pat Farrell advised farmers to use the survey information to drive down their fallen animal’s disposal costs.
