* Compensation to be determined using individual valuation
** Previously ascertained market price (see paragraph 3 below)

Notes:

1. The above notice details the compensation payable for those animals slaughtered because they are either affected with bovine TB, BSE, Brucellosis or EBL or are suspected of having one of these diseases; or are the offspring or cohorts of confirmed BSE cases.

2. Compensation for bovine animals slaughtered for Bovine TB, EBL and Brucellosis is calculated in England under the Cattle Compensation (England) Order 2006 and the Individual Ascertainment of Value Order 2005. Compensation for bovine animals slaughtered for BSE is calculated in England under the TSE Regulations 2006, in Wales under the BSE Compensation (Wales) Regulations 2006, and in Scotland under the TSE (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

3. Where the Secretary of State considers that the sales data for any particular bovine category in any given month are inadequate, or such price data is unavailable, the compensation payable will either be at the level of the most recently ascertained value for the same category or he may opt to pay compensation at the level of the market value of the animal in question, as ascertained under the Individual Ascertainment of Value (England) Order 2005 or the TSE Regulations 2006. A statistical analysis of sales data collected during a twelve months period has helped Defra identify the level of variability in sales prices (for each category). This intelligence is used to determine when there is insufficient data to support a table valuation.

4. Where an owner slaughters an animal voluntarily and privately (which must be agreed with the Department) no compensation will payable.

5. The values in the table of categories above have been derived from sales information obtained from store markets, prime markets, rearing calf sales, breeding sales and dispersal sales in Great Britain between 21 June 2007 and 20 July 2007 for non-pedigree animals, and between 21 January 2007 and 20 July 2007 for pedigree animals.
