1. Off to the Sales - For cattle booked into the sales, please check their ear tags, movement histories and statuses (eg BVD, SPECC) and their passports well in advance of the sale, to allow time if amendments or re-issues are required. Same applies for private sales and abattoirs. Outwith the peak Spring calving period, passports print on Mondays and Thursdays.
2. Returning home from grazings - Please check you have recorded your 'within business' cattle movements if you use additional holdings to your main holding. Same applies for animals heading away for over-wintering. Please record their moves as within business moves to the CPH of the winter housing.
3. Post in passports - Please post in the passports for cattle that have died on farm or are missing, presumed dead. Providing the information you have, date of death or last seen, written on the passport.

A case of African Swine Fever has been declared in the South of Germany on Thursday 26 May, 7 km from the French border, which represents a jump of 500 km in disease. The recent jumps to Italy and the further delay by the UK Government on the introduction of Border checks is of concern to the pig industry. Linked below is a copy of a letter that CVO Scotland will issue to all registered pig keepers along with biosecurity guidance.
Due to the number of birth registrations increasing at this time of year we have introduced a third and fourth passport print run each week. Passports for calves registered before 5pm each Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday are printed and posted the following day.
Please register your calves promptly at this busy time of year; either online, or by giving us a call, and please check your passports when you receive them.
If there is an issue that prevents a calf being registered please contact us as soon as possible; that contact is used as your notification date, which is not impacted by the time taken to resolve the issue, so please be in touch to avoid a late registration and the hassle that causes.
The Huntly office will be closed Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th of December 2021, and Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4thof January 2022 over the festive period. The answer machine will be available for short messages to be left over this period or alternatively please send an email in to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you when we return to the office
We wish you all the best over the festive period.
We are pleased to say that the Huntly office team received negative PCR tests over the weekend and is back to normal working today. Thankyou.
