CATTLE

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ORGANISERS OF
SHOWS AND EXHIBITORS OF CATTLE

SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS – CATTLE

The following changes are being introduced for keepers of bovine animals who wish to show cattle – these changes apply from the 2013 Show season.

Keepers of cattle are now required to obtain a Certificate of Compliance prior to the movement of an animal to a Show. Certificates of Compliance can be obtained online from the Animal Identification and Movement (AIM) system through the www.agfood.ie facility or from the Cattle Movement Notification Agency.

When applying for a Certificate of Compliance, keepers should not specify a destination herd.
On the day of the Show, the Certificate of Compliance should be presented to the Show Coordinator along with the bovine passport for the animal.

The keeper and the Show Coordinator will then sign the Movement Notification section of the Certificate which will then be sent to the local DVO for recording onto the AIM system.

Please note that only cattle for which a valid Certificate of Compliance is provided to the Show Coordinator will be allowed to be shown on the day of the Show.

These Certificates will replace the previously used CMM4 forms.
