Approved Finishing Units (AFUs) provide a route for beef producers to finish animals from both restricted and unrestricted farms.
Pre-movement testing must be carried out on cattle from 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.
These units must be approved by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). The unit must follow strict conditions to reduce the potential risk of disease spread from the premises.
