Evaluation report on 2013 national animal disease exercise

AHVLA has published an ‘evaluation and lessons identified’ report on Exercise Walnut, the UK’s Classical Swine Fever (CSF) exercise which took place in 2013.

Exercise 'Walnut' was designed to simulate a national scale outbreak of CSF to test existing plans and policies for the control and eradication of this significant exotic notifiable disease.

The exercise was organised by AHVLA and involved Defra, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government, the Department for Agriculture and Rural Development, Northern Ireland (DARDNI) and key operational partners.

The 'evaluation and lessons identified' report is available here.
