Regulations on Cattle Removal from Land Prior to Public Event


“I am running a small music festival on 9th June 2018 on a field in the South Hams. The field is being currently used by a farmer who has sheep.  

My question is; is there any regulations about the length of time a field has to be free of livestock and therefore excrement before humans can go on it?

I would appreciate a response because all the avenues I have looked into have proved fruitless.”
