Foot-and-mouth epidemic - new memorial

Inscription

In memory of the uncounted millions of animals who died, not of foot and mouth, but of the cure for foot and mouth.

The first memorial was obviously sinking into the ground when our photograph was taken in 2013. We returned in 2015 and photographed the replacement, but we do not know exactly when the switch happened.
