In this discussion with Gill Carnegie of NFU Mutual on this current topic, we focus on:

  • The newly passed Dogs (Protection of Livestock) (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill
  • The options for recovery – suing for damages and compensation via criminal prosecution
  • Insurance cover for losses – availability, actions to reduce the cost
  • What can be done to reduce the likelihood of it happening in the first place
  • Why the new Bill isn't the end of the story and what more is required to effectively deal with the problem and compensate farmers
