Shetland Animal Health Scheme

The Shetland Animal Health Scheme focuses on protecting and enhancing the health status of cattle and sheep on Shetland and tackles a wide variety of diseases.The scheme was formed over 20 years ago and has long been the envy of mainland farmers.

It operates under the basic principles of testing stock for a variety of disease as they enter the isles to keep disease out, and the annual screening of Shetland herds and flocks to maintain freedom from disease.The SAHS is funded by the Shetland Islands Council.
