Benefits will outweigh burdens

 Making PEDv notifiable is not expected to pose a significant burden on industry.  Defra estimates that the total national cost across England would be around £24,000.  There is more information on this in the Q&A


Why the contribution is important

We need to be sure that any proposal to put legislation in place won't put any undue burdens on the pig industry

    We need to be on the front foot with PEDv. We can't wait, see and hope

    There is a cost to everything. Being better prepared might have a cost component of the suggested £24k and no doubt some other components as well. Advent of the disease will be much more costly so any upfront expenditure which is going to keep overall costs as low as possible is worth serious consideration. Like all insurance premiums it's dead money until you have to make a claim!
