flock number
« on: January 27, 2010, 02:08:26 pm »
do I need a flock number of my own? I have a CPH number but the flock number - which I think is the one on the back of the eartag that was already in the sheep when I bought them, obviously comes from the other farm. Should I have/use my own?

All the animals I got from other people retain their breeder/previous owners flock number on their tag. The ones  I breed myself are tagged with my flock number.
