Voluntary slaughter of livestock

Recipients of decrees from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and who voluntarily slaughter their sheep as a part of combating scrapie- and CAE/Maedi/Visna disease can apply for financial compensation

  • Application for compensation following voluntary slaughter

    The scheme applies to enterprises who have received decrees concerning restrictions on sending their sheep off to joint pasture areas because of scrapie disease or mædi/visna (NO) virus and who voluntarily slaughter their livestock.

    In order for an enterprise to be eligible for compensation, the entire livestock has to be slaughtered in full and at once, furthermore; that the barn, furnishing and affected equipment has to be disinfected according to instructions provided by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. In part, compensation can be given for costs resulting from refurnishing and renovation as deemed necessary by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

    Applications can be forwarded electronically through Altinn.no or by post to the county administration.

    The compensation scheme is regulated in by-law (NO): Forskrift om erstatning etter offentlige pålegg og restriksjoner i plante- og husdyrproduksjonen.
