Check your CBRDs
PRODUCERS who do not have cattle birth record documents when livestock enter the market not only risk achieving lower prices but will still have to provide this information at a later date.
The holding where an animal was born will need tracing later by the new owner, warns Glyn Owens of Welsh livestock auctioneers McCartneys.
He recommends those selling both 8-10 month old cattle and older stock to obtain CBRDs from their nearest MAFF animal health divisional office now, and arrange for a vet to visit, to save hassle later on. *
