Hiya! We had our first set of lambs this year in SW Scotland. We are renting the land (about 14 acres) and have a landless keepers CPH. I've been told we need to get the landlords CPH number and flock number in order to register any of our sheep. Anyone else had this happen?? Also, are we able to get a SFA for our holding? Still very new to all this and trying to sort it out! Cheers!!!

in scotland all sheep are registered to the holding and flock number of the land they are born on regardless of ownership

to even have the sheep there you should have the cph number of the land as you cant use a landless keeper number to move stock.

the herd number is tied to the cph so ask if they have one if not they are easy to get issued.
