Pa ystyriaeth y mae Llywodraeth Cymru wedi'i rhoi i ganiatáu neu ei gwneud yn ofynnol i wartheg sy'n adweithyddion twbercwlosis buchol gael eu dinistrio oddi ar y fferm, er budd iechyd meddwl a lles gweithwyr amaethyddol?
The slaughter of the majority of TB reactors is undertaken in an abattoir. Whilst we recognise it can be distressing for keepers to have their cattle slaughtered on farm, there are a number of circumstances where this is unavoidable because it is either not possible for animals to be transported to an abattoir or to be slaughtered in an abattoir. For example:
- If animals have been medicated or are in a medicine withdrawal period and cannot be slaughtered in an abattoir due to Food Standards Agency guidelines.
- If cows are heavily in calf or have recently calved and they are therefore unfit for transport to an abattoir.
- If animals are unfit to be transported to an abattoir for welfare reasons, such as injury.
