EU sheep laws.

More EU  nonsense re the electronic tagging of farmers sheep.
The regulations, to be introduced in January next year, mean each sheep must be fitted with an electronic ear tag. The move is designed to track all individual sheep in the wake of the foot and mouth epidemic of 2001. But Britain has more sheep than anywhere else in Europe, and farmers, already under pressure from falling prices and low profit margins, say it is not practicable or even necessary.
We have 30 million sheep in the country:
The huge costs associated with introducing the scheme - around £5,000-£6,000 for a machine to scan the tags, which themselves could cost between 50p and £1.50 each - would be enough to sink some farms.
Still works out cheaper than ID cards, maybe the scum in New Labour could have us all fitted with ear tags?...
