Clive Lockton from the New Road Farm in Todenham, was disqualified after having pleading guilty to seven offences relating to the “appalling welfare conditions” his pigs, cattle and hens were kept in.
When inspectors visited the farm on 8 November 2017 pigs and hens were found to be accessing waste food which was in the area near the animal feed storage bins. The waste contained meat products including sausages and chicken and bacon sandwiches.
He also admitted failing to report the movements to cattle onto his holding, failing to put ear tags on calves within the required time limits and breaches of feed hygiene legislation in relation to cleaning out pens, feed and water troughs.
On three separate visits from animal health inspectors from Gloucestershire County Council Trading Standards Services, issues were found relating to the condition the animals were being kept in.
Cllr Nigel Moor, cabinet member at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “There are rules and regulations in place to prevent the mistreatment of animals. When our advice is not heeded and animals are found to be neglected and suffering, we will not hesitate to prosecute.
“I am pleased that the courts put this ban in place and I hope this case serves as a warning to others.”
