Today at Coleraine Magistrates Court, James Ivor Graham, a farmer from Ballykenver Road, Stranocum, Ballymoney, received suspended prison sentences for charges relating to keeping pigs.

James Ivor Graham was convicted of one charge of failing to maintain a pig holding register, one charge of failing to identify 12 pigs with an ear tag, one charge of failing to send a copy of a movement document to the department within seven days of the movement of pigs, one charge of failing to keep veterinary medicine records and one charge of failing to dispose of animal carcasses. He pleaded guilty and received four months imprisonment suspended for two years on one charge and two months suspended for two years on another. He was also fined £750 plus £15 offender’s levy.

The case arose following an inspection of James Ivor Graham’s premises by inspectors from the department. They discovered amongst other things, 12 sows with no ear tags and the movement of a large number of pigs had not been notified to the department.
