Time is running out for Welsh farmers to return their 2019 annual sheep and goat inventory forms to EIDCymru, which are due by 1 February.
Failure to comply with the legal requirement could result in an increased chance of the holding being inspected.
NFU Cymru Livestock Board chairman Wyn Evans said: “Farmers should have received the forms by 1 January 2019 and with a relatively short time period to get the inventory form completed, I would urge all sheep and goat keepers to prioritise this work if you haven’t already done so.”
According to NFU Cymru, farmers should:
- Include the number of sheep and goats the farmer is the registered keeper of, by CPH location, on 1 January 2019
- Record the number of sheep and goats on 1 January in their on-farm flock record to avoid a potential cross-compliance penalty
- Complete and return the paper form they received before 1 January 2019
- Or complete the form online via the EIDCymru website if already registered with EIDCymru
