A Dispatch/Movement Document completed by the owner of the goats must accompany goats moving off the holding, throughout their movement. The Dispatch/ Movement Document is a three-part document, which must be signed by the herd keeper off whose holding the goats are being moved. In addition the blank areas of the Document must be completed by the owner of the goat(s), indicating the number of goats being moved and the herd number of the farm or (in the case of a slaughter plant or mart) the name and address of the holding to which the goat(s) have been consigned. The individual identification code of all goats must also be recorded on the dispatch/movement document unless the goats were born before 31 December 2009 and are being moved to a slaughterhouse.
