Detail

Approved finishing units (AFUs) provide a route for cattle keepers to fatten or finish animals from both TB restricted and unrestricted farms.

Pre-movement testing must be carried out on cattle from TB restricted farms within 90 days before they are moved to the AFU.

AFUs with grazing must be tested every 90 days. There is no requirement to test animals on AFUs without grazing.

Please note that there is an application form for units in England and a form for units in Wales.

The guidance documents explain the terms and conditions for the approval an operation of an AFU.
