Farmer fined £23,000 after admitting a catalogue of record-keeping failures

A farmer has been fined over £23,000 for admitting a catalogue of record-keeping failures.

 

Michael Dixon of WR & JE Dixon admitted 12 specimen charges and requested a further 249 related offences to be taken into consideration at Carlisle City Magistrates.

 

Mr Dixon had reportedly failed to apply for cattle passports in the specified time and had manipulated birth dates of calves born at the farm by up to eight months.

 

Cumbria trading standards said this type of failure could have encouraged the spread of disease such as bovine TB and BSE.

 

The farm had also failed to report cattle movement on and off its holding, and had sold cattle at auction marts with an incorrect date of birth.

 

Mr Dixon was fined £23,550 and ordered to pay three and a half thousand pound costs.
