In Scotland, lambs MUST be EID tagged.
From 1st January 2015, sheep keepers in England
are no longer permitted to use non-EID tags for lambs. Single EID slaughter tags MUST
be used in lambs not being retained
Lambs born BEFORE 1st January 2015 are still permitted to carry a non-EID tag and DO NOT need to be retagged.
, non-EID slaughter tags can still be used until 1st January 2016
No. You need to send the passport back to BCMS to be changed as it is a legal document. The beast can be sent when a revised passport has been issued. If a beast arrives with the wrong sex on the passport, it will be left alive until trading standards
Please order a new tag and tag the beast before sending in to avoid any complications. If the beast loses its only ear tag in transit it is then unidentifiable.
