Sheep and goat farmers across Wales are being reminded to submit their annual inventory by February 1, 2022.
The inventory, as reminded by the Farmers' Union of Wales (FUW), needs to list the number of sheep and/or goats that were owned on each holding on January 1, 2022.
On behalf of FUW, the union's Pembrokeshire county executive officer Rebecca Voyle said:
It’s that time of year again where farmers who keep sheep and goats need to submit their inventory.
“Farmers are being encouraged to complete the form online through their EIDCymru account but paper copies can also be submitted.
“It’s worth noting that the deadline to submit the form is Tuesday, February 1, and a late submission could increase the risk of being selected for an inspection.”
Farmers who no longer keep sheep or goats need to deregister the union notes, and sign and return the declaration form.
Forms can be found online, on the EIDCymru website.
