Livestock movement

You need this licence if you are moving livestock animals around or into North Somerset.

Once the animals have arrived at their destination you must send through the livestock movement form within three days.

Once animals have been moved they cannot be moved again for:

  • six days (cattle, sheep and goats)
  • twenty days (pigs)

Free livestock movement books, recording the animals veterinary, medicine and breeding records are available.

Contact the trading standards team for more information, application forms or livestock movement books.
