NFU Cymru is reminding farmers that the 2019 Annual Sheep and Goat Inventory forms must be returned by 1 February 2019.
The form is a legal requirement and must be returned by no later than 1 February 2019 to avoid an increased risk of being selected for an inspection. The form should include the number of sheep and goats of which the farmer is the registered keeper, by CPH location, on 1 January 2019. Farmers must also record the number of sheep and goats on 1 January in their on-farm flock record to avoid a potential cross-compliance penalty.
Sheep and goat keepers have the option of completing the form online via www.eidcymru.org. However keepers must have registered to EIDCymru prior to submitting the online inventory return. If you are completing the form electronically, you do not need to return the paper form.
