New Guidance on Registering, Identifying and Movement

10 September 2013, at 11:47am

UK - A new guidance document for pig keepers on registering, identifying and moving your pigs has been prepared by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra).

Whether you keep one pet pig or a commercial herd you must by law be registered as a pig keeper with the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA).

In the event of a disease outbreak, knowing the precise location of all livestock is essential for effective measures to control and eradicate disease. You place both your own and other livestock in the area at risk if you do not register your holding or report notifiable diseases.
