I did think that when I read your posts. When you get a CPH number, why don't they are you if you are going to keep livestock and advise you about herd / flock numbers. Now THAT would be joined up government!

When we rang, they were  great, we only had 6 hens then and were just asking. We were asked what we were thinking (goats & pigs) and they gave us a number immediately, and we've rung many times for advice/clarification.
DEFRA seem more helpful than the local office it has to be said. (ours is many many miles away in Staffordshire..... whatever!)

To be fair, I've always found Animal Health very helpful.
