In certain cases, you will receive compensation from the Land and the Animal Health Fund for animal losses, e.g. for animal losses due to notifiable epidemics, official killings and damage resulting from official control measures. Compensation is governed by the provisions of the Animal Health Act. They may receive compensation for private, professional or commercial animals of the following species: Horses, donkeys, mules, mules Cattle (including bison, bison and water buffalo) Pigs Sheep Goats Poultry Gehegewild Bees and bumblebees Fish not kept for ornamental purposes The amount of compensation is based on the general value of the animal. This is the amount of money (excluding VAT) that you must spend to purchase an equivalent animal on the day of the damage. The basis is, for example, the prices of the livestock markets. The value of the animal does not change if the animal is ill, for example, suffers from an epidemic. The maximum rates per animal vary depending on the species. Fish shall be compensated if they are killed by official order in the event of exotic fish epidemics and if the other animal-scientific conditions are met.
