Annual Survey due as at 1 December

The survey is taken as at 1 December to avoid duplication of effort with the mandatory annual inventory.  Don't forget that Defra (SEERAD in Scotland) requires that in December every year you must:

  • update your holding register with the number of sheep that are on your land on 1 December
  • complete an annual inventory and send it to relevant authority

You should have received an email or letter, reminding you to update your register and giving details of how to complete the inventory.  If not then the contact details for Defra and SEERAD are in the latest newsletter in the members' area.
