    NBA’s P&O ferry link for pedigree exports already showing its value

Over £1 million of pedigree cattle have already been shipped through the high-health, live export, route established by P&O Ferries and the National Beef Association in October last year.

The NBA’s Policy Advisor, Kim Haywood, has confirmed that up to the end of last week 156 pedigree cows, 39 bulls, 6 calves and 139 heifers have been exported through Dover since the Association promised to safeguard shipment for high value animals on P&O vessels.

The main destinations are France, Germany, Poland, Holland, and Belgium and the breeds include Highland, Limousin, Angus, Saler, Holstein-Friesian, Dexter, Galloway, Hereford, Gascon and Bazadaise.

“Interest in this high-health export channel increases weekly. Pedigree exporters are attracted by the strictly controlled transport conditions. So far over £1 million of animals have been moved and the value of this traffic could treble by the end of the year,” said Ms Haywood.
