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.
