NFU Fly-Grazing Service

Fly-grazing, the practice of leaving horses on someone else’s land without permission, is on the increase among some irresponsible horse owners.

While actual numbers are difficult to collate, welfare charities estimate that, in England alone, at least 3,000 horses are being fly-grazed grazed on public and private land. The NFU has been working closely with local authorities, members and lobbying MPs to raise the profile of the issue, and highlight the need for a solution for farmers.

It also includes information on legislation which may be used when dealing with fly-grazing, which will be updated as necessary.

The following items are included within the pack:
