Horse welfare and microchipping - Tuesday 26 June

Horse welfare and microchipping

Defra’s publication of new horse microchipping law in England is positively reported by a range of media with coverage focused on how the change will prevent abuse and improve the welfare of ponies and horses.

The Express carries support from stakeholders including from the RSPCA, who are “delighted” at the new regulations, and the British Horse Council, who state that this “this is a huge advance for the UK’s horses, ponies and donkeys.”

There has also been broadcast coverage on BBC Farming Today and BBC Two’s Victoria Derbyshire Show, as well as widespread regional and trade coverage in the Yorkshire Post, Cumbria Crack, TheHorse.com, Agriland, Vet Times and the Horse and Hound.
