How many English keepers had (any type of) inspection failings in 2011?
“From 1,762 inspections on sheep/goat holdings last year approximately 170
inspections had failures related to breaches of SMR8 *. The most common
failure in recent years has been inaccurate movement records in the keeper’s
holding register.”
What happens when a keeper ‘fails’ an inspection?
“Action can range from a warning letter through to a 5% reduction being applied
to the Single Payment Scheme money claimed by the keeper before it is paid
out. For repeat failures greater reductions can be applied.”

The History
SAGRIMO 2000 - Requirement to tag sheep with holding of birth
identifier ….. UK123456
Initially UK derogation from European requirement for EID on basis of an
established workable traceability system within UK.
Including
“S” tags – applied to sheep leaving a holding other than holding of birth.
Building pride in Cumbria
The History
February 2007 FVO Inspection. European Inspectors visit selected
counties within UK including Cumbria.
Includes visits to markets, farms and high volume premises (dealers).
Deficiencies found in tagging including non-compliance with “S” tag rules
and completion of AML1 movement documentation.
Defra justification for derogation undermined and derogation withdrawn.
European based requirements for sheep EID to be introduced to UK
commencing 31 December 2009.

EID – The Information
Building pride in Cumbria
EID – The Register
Building pride in Cumbria
EID - the basics
For ID purposes sheep are divided into two categories
• Those intended for BREEDING
• Those intended for SLAUGHTER within 12 months of age
3.1 When to identify?
All lambs born on your holding must be identified within nine months of
birth …….OR ……..
…….. before the animal moves from its holding of birth including moves to
slaughter, temporary grazing, common grazing, market - whichever
happens first.

EID – the records
Register - Record of Identification of Animals
Building pride in Cumbria
EID - the basics
BREEDING sheep - approved tags and their use
Tags ordered from suppliers through ETAS (eartag allocation system)
All EID holding of birth tags are yellow.
EID tags carry number within chip and readable UK123456 flock number and 5 digit individual
number.
Match up tags can be any colour other than yellow, red or black and carry UK123456 flock
number and 5 digit individual number.
EID tag used in combination with match up tag is “FULL EID” ie DOUBLE TAGGING.
Breeding sheep and those intended for breeding born after 31 December 2009 MUST be
FULL EID DOUBLE TAGGED
Building pride in Cumbria
EID - the basics
BREEDING sheep approved tags and their use
Replacing lost tags of breeding sheep still on holding of birth
Lost one tag? – remove remaining tag and re-apply holding of birth FULL
EID DOUBLE tags. Record replacement in flock register cross referenced
to “original” ID.
Lost both tags? – Apply new holding of birth FULL EID DOUBLE tags and
record replacement in register (cross reference – unidentified / ID lost)
Lost tags replaced within 28 days of discovery or before moving off
whichever is sooner.

BREEDING sheep approved tags and their use
Replacing lost tags of breeding sheep NOT on holding of birth
Lost one tag? – remove remaining tag and re-apply RED FULL EID DOUBLE
replacement tags. Record replacement in flock register cross referenced to
“original” ID obtained from tag removed.
Lost both tags? – Apply new RED * FULL EID DOUBLE replacement tags and
record replacement in register (cross reference - unidentified)
Lost tags replaced within 28 days of discovery or before moving off whichever is
sooner.

2.
Apply plastic flockmark “batch” tag UK123456 only, any colour other than
yellow, red, black.
•
Sheep should not be identified by single slaughter tag after 30 June
following year of birth

EID - movements documents and register
Fully identified EID double tagged sheep
Moving within business to same CPH (land less than 5 miles) or linked
adjacent Common
No recording and no reporting.
Moving within business, same keeper, different CPH
Record number of animals moving in register and on the movement
document (batch movement).
Moving to a different CPH with change of keeper or business
Individual identities of all sheep required on document and in register.
Documents can be retained and cross referenced within register.

EID - movements documents and register
How do I get the individual identities of all my sheep required for recording on the
movement document and in the register?
Move to / from mart?
Use Central Point Recording Centre (CPRC) option?
Off move?
Complete tick box on movement document
and state number of sheep moving ONLY – NO ID or
flock mark entry. CPRC will supply list of identities - within
48 hrs?
On move?
CPRC will supply list of identities – within 48 hrs?
Building pride in Cumbria
EID - movements documents and register
What if the CPRC data is incomplete?
The keeper is responsible for the accuracy of his records including where he
decides to use information supplied by a CPRC to complete them. EU legislation
does not provide for a tolerance of discrepancies in animal identity record keeping
in the holding register. Discrepancies should therefore be rectified.
The CPRC list of EID tag numbers can be in numerical order and with a total. It is
the keeper’s responsibility to check that the total number of tags listed on the
CPRC list matches the total which he entered on to his AML1 movement form when
he sent the animals to market.
If he does not note and resolve a discrepancy and if that is subsequently noticed at
an inspection the keeper is then at risk of having his single farm payment reduced
under cross compliance rules.

EID - movements documents and register
Batch within batch / mixed batch moves ……. another headache?
Single tag slaughter sheep (and full EID within a business?) can move as a
batch move.
No ID declared on AML1.
Flock mark(s) must be recorded in register
Building pride in Cumbria
EID - movements documents and register
Batch within batch / mixed batch moves ……. another headache?
No problem for breeder at departure holding of birth, whether EID slaughter tag or
batch / flockmark tag. Records X number of sheep on AML1 and in register X
sheep UK123456.
BUT
Bought in store lambs moving off? Many flock marks within consignment?
Mixed batch recording needed for register.
• Batch / flockmark slaughter tags – manual reading is only option.
• EID slaughter tags – can be read and recorded prior to movement or at CPRC.

Problems
Lost tags. Arrive at CPRC with missing tags?
Misreads / tag failure?
Batch tags.
Inaccurate / incomplete CPRC information / data.
Moves other than through CPRC?
Private sales.
Long distance moves with keeper change (same owner) to wintering.

Conclusion
Do I need my own reader?
Individual decision based on individual circumstances and farming production type.
What is at stake?
Breeding / selling home bred stock?
Applying tags in sequence prior to sale?
What happens when double identified cast ewes move off?
Selling mixed batches?
Am I prepared to rely on CPRC information - or want to remain self reliant?
