DEFRA state: “Animal carcasses or parts of animal carcasses suspected or confirmed as infected by a TSE are category 1 ABPs. They must be disposed of by incineration, or processing (rendering) followed by incineration.”
For any other kind of livestock or agricultural incinerator please take a look at our Animal Incinerator page.
Typical Diseases that Incineration can eradicate:
We manufacture two specially designed bovine incinerators:
Spectrum Volkan 1500 Bovine Incinerator – designed especially for the incineration and loading of cattle, with capacity for <1000kg.
Spectrum Volkan 2000 Bovine Incinerator – our largest animal incinerator, with a huge capacity of <2000kg.
All of our models are DEFRA-type approved, highly efficient bovine incinerators which means that you are legally allowed to use them on your own farm for carcass disposal, and that no planning permission is typically required.

Why buy a bovine incinerator, when I can have my bovine carcasses collected?
The average cost of incinerating bovine carcasses through collection can be vast due to the size of the cattle and the subsequent difficulties in incinerating.
Purchasing your own bovine incinerator, helps to solve this problem, and is typically far cheaper per cattle than using a collection scheme.
Beyond the financial benefits incineration also offers:
1. Bio-security – no carcasses are brought onto your farm, no carcasses leave your farm. Incineration is a pure and simple way to protect yourself against contamination from another farm.
2. Reliability – our animal incinerators typically last 12-15 years, and we have a dedicated service team on call should you experience any problems. No more waiting for collection.
3. Protect against future costs – when carcasses are collected, you pay for them to be transported and incinerated, so when fuel costs rise, you pay twice for the increase. Purchasing an animal incinerator cut out this unnecessary cost, which helps to protect the environment, and your coffers.
