Completion of cattle passports when cattle are moved off holdings

7.—(1) When cattle are moved off the holding of birth (or the first holding after arrival in Great Britain) for the purposes of sale or slaughter, the keeper shall complete and sign the box headed “seller’s details” in Part II of the cattle passport for each animal before the animal is moved off the holding.

(2) When cattle are moved off any subsequent holding (other than a market) for the purposes of sale or slaughter, the keeper shall complete and sign the next empty box headed “seller’s details” in Part II of the cattle passport for each animal before the animal is moved off the holding.

(3) When cattle are moved from one herd to another on the same holding, the keeper of each herd shall complete and sign the next empty boxes headed “seller’s details” and “buyer’s details” in Part II of the cattle passport as if the keeper of the first herd were the seller and the keeper of the second herd were the buyer.

(4) When cattle are taken to a show, fair or similar function and it is intended to return the animal to the same holding, the keeper —

(a)before moving the animal off the holding shall complete the next empty box marked “seller’s details” in Part II of the cattle passport as if the movement were for the purposes of sale;

(b)on arrival at the show stall mark the box headed “details of market” with the name and address of the show; and

(c)on returning to the original holding complete the box marked “buyer’s details” in Part II of the cattle passport as if he were the buyer within 36 hours of arrival or before the animal is moved off that holding if sooner.

(5) A keeper shall not be required to complete a cattle passport in the case of an animal moving from one holding to another holding for the purposes of temporary grazing, providing the animal does not come into contact with any cattle from a different herd; but if the animal comes into contact with an animal from another herd the keeper shall complete the details of the cattle passport as if the movement were a movement for the purposes of sale or slaughter.
