During an outbreak of exotic notifiable animal disease, it may be necessary to cull animals to control disease spread. Animals on the UK breeds at risk list may be spared from the cull to preserve their genetic resource.

Owners of breeds at risk animals should complete and send this form to the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA).

See the guidance on disease outbreaks and animals that may be spared.
