a. compensating owners for: the slaughter and destruction of animals; the
destruction of milk; the cleaning and disinfection of holdings; the
destruction of contaminated feedingstuffs and, where it cannot be
disinfected, contaminated equipment; losses incurred by farmers as a result
of restrictions imposed on the marketing of livestock and pasture-fattened
animals as a result of the reintroduction of emergency vaccination...
b. Where applicable, the transport of carcasses to processing plants;
c. any other measures which are essential for the eradication of the outbreak of the diseases.
The last part of section (a) is interesting. It appears that the farmers fears of losses through the 'two-tier' market arising out of vaccination were unfounded.
They are entitled to compensation.
However, it should be the noted that, because of the Fountainebleau agreement and the Brussels accord on the UK rebate, a 71 percent clawback applies to payments, deducted from the rebate. Thus the UK, in fact, will pay 83 percent of the costs.
