IMPORTANT NEWS FOR SHEEP KEEPERS IN ENGLAND

2015 - CHANGES TO ID & RECORDING Identification of lambs:- • Slaughter lambs tagged from 1st January 2015 must be identified with an EID tag, this can be:- • A single yellow EID slaughter tag, or • Full EID - one yellow EID tag and a matching non EID tag **This change does not apply to lambs already tagged in 2014** Recording movements of older sheep - tagged before 2010 • From 1st January 2015 their individual animal numbers must be entered on movement documents This does not apply if they are moving:- - to slaughter - within your business to a holding where you are their keeper - to a CPRC - if they are already electronically tagged •  These animals can still be batch recorded in your holding register • We recommend you re-tag these animals with EID tags if you do not intend to move them direct to slaughter ~~~~~~~~~~~~ For those selling cull ewes under the hammer - keep all your options open by EID tagging your sheep, i.e. one yellow EID tag and one matching non EID tag. Ewes not EID tagged can only be sold for slaughter Trading Standards have also noticed that a few people are tagging their sheep in the pens on market day, all sheep should be tagged on the holding before travelling to market ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TB RULES: From 1st January 2013 all cattle holdings in East Sussex will become twelve month TB testing holdings and, therefore, their movement between holdings will be subject to TB pre-movement testing.

Hailsham Market - Wednesday:

South East Marts are pleased to announce that Hailsham Market on Wednesdays will now be able

to accept cattle, i.e. cull cows, finished cattle, etc. fro East Sussex without TB pre-movement testing

in their exempt market section.

Cattle sold through the exempt market section will need to be moved from the market direct to a slaughterhouse, direct to an approved or exempt finishing unit or can be returned to the farm if unsold, i.e. the premises of origin. Only cattle from TB unrestricted herds in East Sussex will be acceptable.  It is a requirement of the AHVLA that cattle are physically separated from other cattle and sold at the end of the sale to restricted destinations as listed before. N.B.  There appears to be some confusion over TB movement time periods: Cattle ‘moving off’ of TB free herds that are required to test annually and subject to TB pre-movement testing still have 60 days to be ‘moved off’ from the start date of the test. Please note that the sixty day period runs from the start date of the test and not four days later when the cattle are pronounced clear.  The six day rule remains unchanged. All other livestock marketing operations on a Wednesday continue as normal.
