The Ludlow Hunt provides a drop off service for Fallen Stock within the Hunt country. This service is available between the hours of 6am to 10am Monday to Saturday inclusive (excludes Christmas Day).
NOTE: KENNELS STAFF MUST BE NOTIFIED IF ANIMALS HAVE BEEN DISPOSED OF BY LETHAL INJECTION, OR BEEN TREATED WITH LONG COURSES OF ANTIBIOTICS.
Our fallen stock scheme is a loss making enterprise, which is designed to look after the farmers and landowners that support the Ludlow hounds crossing their land in the winter months. From the 1st July 2020 we will be charging VAT, but our price net of tax will NOT be increasing.
Having not put our prices up since 2015 we pride ourselves in offering the most cost effective fallen stock service in the area.
**Please DO NOT leave livestock alive and unattended at Kennels. It is essential that any livestock that has to be destroyed is done so humanely by prior arrangement by the telephone numbers provided below. Such incidents put the entire fallen stock scheme at risk for ALL farmers. Thank you.**
