If you own a herd, flock or even a single animal of the most common livestock, such as cattle, sheep, goats, deer, horses or pigs, there are rules you must follow to stop the spread of diseases.
These rules cover the identification, tracing, movement of livestock and keeping of relevant records.
The Business Link website can provide advice and guidance on record keeping.
