Don’t miss Teagasc webinar on equine travel and customs
TEAGASC will resume its highly successful ‘Let’s Talk Equine’ series of webinars on February 2nd which will focus on equine travel and related issues.
Panel guests for the 8.30pm session are Catherine Lawler, Superintending Veterinary Officer, Live Trade Animal Health Division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and Celine O’Neill, Principal Officer in the Customs Division of Revenue.
The topics will focus on moving horses from Ireland to the UK (export/import) as well as animal products (semen/embryos).
Brexit has changed the entire landscape of export/import controls on everything from food to animal and people movements between Britain and EU countries. And with plenty of new paperwork, rules and regulations to get to grips with, this webinar, organised by Teagasc equine specialist Wendy Conlon, is very timely. Items likely to be discussed on the night include equine movement via the UK landbridge, customs requirements, VAT, and animal product issues.
