Information on how to get a livestock movement licence.
Licences allow livestock ( pigs, sheep, goats, deer) to be legally moved off your premises.
Without a licence they cannot be legally moved.
Cattle movements differ as their movements are recorded through the passport system administered by British Cattle Movement Service (BCMS).
The BCMS website can provide further information:
