Sheep flock register

Under the NSIS it is a legal requirement that persons who hold or keep sheep on a registered holding, maintain records of the individual animal identification number attached to the animals. It is also a legal requirement to keep a written record of the movement of animals onto or off the registered holding. To facilitate the recording of these details Flock Registers are issued to all registered sheep flock owners.
