MV SCHEME - RETURNING SHEEP TO PEDIGREE FLOCKS

By Suffolk Sheep Society 11th October, 2017

It has been drawn to our attention that on occasions members may be bringing registered rams back into their pedigree flocks after having been in contact with a non-MV accredited flocks. Where this happens, the sheep are required to be retested.

Clause 4.3 (Returning Animals to a Holding) of the rules and regulations state that "If you return a previously MV accredited animal to your MV accredited holding, the flock(s) situated on that holding(s) will lose their MV accredited status unless the
following requirements are met:
-The animal must not have lost its MV accredited status through non-compliance with Rule 4.2 or otherwise
- The animal must not have had any contact with non-MV accredited animals"
