Your Queries about the Autumn Movement Scheme Answered


SOME questions about the Autumn Movement Scheme are answered on Defra's website:

Will councils be able to cope with all this extra work?

We have involved the local authorities at all stages in the planning of the licensing system and are meeting their extra costs from central government funds. But it is a necessary, complicated system and there may be teething problems to begin with.

What does this mean for movements?

High Risk Counties (HRC): All sheep moving within an HRC will require the flock to be blood tested as well as a veterinary inspection of the animals to be moved.

Infected Areas: In addition to HRC restrictions, no movements into or out of infected areas. All sheep movements will require a negative blood test result.

At Risk Counties (ARC): Animals can move within ARCs or to other ARCs. Animals may move into ARCs from FFCs. All sheep require a blood test of the flock as well as a veterinary inspection of the animals to be moved.

FMD Free Counties (FFC): Animals may move within the same county or to other FFCs. They may also move into an ARC. Sheep do not require a blood test but still require a veterinary inspection of the animals to be moved.

Do requirements differ for different types of animal?

Yes. All sheep (and goats and camelids) require a blood test if they are in an ARC or a HRC. Sheep may only move once (other than to slaughter).

Batches of sheep may be moved to up to three premises in a 14-day period. For rams, a movement licence will allow movement of group of animals to more than three premises on condition that each ram is individually identified and blood tested.

How do I get my sheep blood tested?

Once an application for a movement licence has been made, the local authority will contact the local Defra office if blood testing is needed.

They will then contact the farmer. Licences which require blood testing will not be available until October 1. This is because existing blood testing capacity is being used to complete surveillance in ARCs.

A blood result will be valid for 14 days. Once signed by a vet the animals must move within 24 hours.

Is blood just taken from just those sheep due to move (in ARCs/HRCs)?

No, blood sampling is of the whole flock rather than just the sheep due to move.

The blood test detects antibodies to FMD but, as antibodies are only produced some 5-10 days after infection, it does not detect those sheep which have been recently infected. …
