In the lead up to our departure from the European Union, our veterinary surgeons and field services team have been asked many questions regarding the changes and implications that this may have on the game bird industry. Following our exit, we are now in a good position to update our clients on Brexit, and answer some of your most frequently asked questions. Please see below:
Q1. Are we likely to see any price rises following our exit from the European Union?
A1. At present, we have not experienced any major price increases following Brexit. However we do anticipate that some price rises will happen. We will aim to update clients on these at the soonest opportunity should they occur.
Q2. Has Brexit caused any issues with supply lines, and are St David’s experiencing any delays with deliveries?
A2. Currently we are not being affected by any delays with products or medication imported from the EU. At St David’s we always aim to have a good stock of the main products that we know our clients regularly purchase from us, buying 2 – 3 months in advance as standard practice. With that in mind we don’t foresee any issues for clients relating to accessing our stock.
Q3. What are the rules and regulations around feathered game, can this still be sold to the European Union?
A3. The rules, regulations and paperwork required in relation to selling birds in feather has changed following Brexit. The British Game Alliance have written a helpful article outlining these changes and what impact they will have. Please see the link here for more information.
If you have any further questions relating to Brexit and how this could impact your farm or shoot, please contact the head office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the team will be happy to help.
