General Movement Licence Introduced

On the advice of the Chief Veterinary Officer (Scotland), Scottish Ministers have introduced a general movement licence which permits movements of less than 8km for routine farming operations, provided these are within premises or between premises in a single farming business.

The new General Licence below will allow farmers in Scotland to move animals such as cattle, sheep, goats and pigs within their premises, or between premises if they are part of a single farm business. The move must however not be longer than 8km in a straight line, and is subject to biosecurity conditions. This will allow more normality in farming operations.
