There is a new DAERA form that needs to be completed in advance of purchasing livestock in the south called TRACESNT. It is VITAL that all customers from Northern Ireland contact their local ministry office to ensure that they are registered and approved on the “tracesnt” system for importing cattle if they haven’t imported cattle since the beginning of the year. This only takes a few minutes to complete and will then allow livestock to move North.
