New NVZ regulations governing certain livestock farming operations including the storage and spreading of slurry and animal wastes, come into force in some parts of the UK in January 2012. The Agricultural Mortgage Corporation offers straightforward funding solutions for NVZ related projects.
If your livestock farm lies within an NVZ designated area you will be obliged to comply with the rules by ensuring you operate farming systems within the regulations.
