Both companies have been recently set up with the NFU HQ as their headquarters. ‘Gloscon’ for the Gloucestershire cull and ‘HNV Associates Ltd’ for the Somerset area. These are the ‘companies’ to which Natural England will be issuing licences to kill badgers. These are the people who will be organising the shooters and collecting the money from the farmers and are therefore responsible for the badger cull.
