Sheep and goats

Information on the old Defra website currently covers the following:

  • Information and guidance on the requirements for sheep and goats identification, notification of movements and requirements for standstill periods for the sheep sector.
  • Identification and movement of sheeps and goats.
  • General health and welfare guidance covering on-farm welfare, transport, markets and slaughter. For detailed information on specific sheep diseases including scrapie and the National Scrapie Plan, and foot and mouth see the animal health and welfare section

Also of relevance to the sheep sector are the pages on: fallen stock, animal by-products and specific topics under the waste management section, including slurry and silage waste issues.
