new member with a few questions
« on: October 28, 2009, 05:50:11 pm »
Hi all, im Diane from Oldham in Lancashire, ive been a self employed pet sitter for five years now, and have also bought myself  horse in the last 18 months, ( only a youngster ) Ive also just rented 2.5 acres of land locally, with a view to putting my horse on there when hes older,( not at the moment as houses are being built nearby )
I want to use this land in the meantime and have negotiated with a lady to buy 6 Kune Kune pigs I should be picking them up saturday 31st October,
I will ask a couple of questions now but may also put them elsewhere on this forum
I have a holding number but do I need anything else (movement licence)?
as pet pigs do they have to have ear tags?
can pigs be microchipped?
if the lady doesn't have the paperwork registration documents can i still pick them up ( my herd number is on the way )
thanks in advance for any advice
Diane
Since I posted ive found out the lady has all the paperwork so that's one problem solved

You will need both your CPH number (from RPA) and your Herd No. from the local Animal health Office but for the Movement Licence you only need to record the CPH no. on the Movement Licence (AML) which the vendor should provide you with when you collect your pigs. You will need AMLs of your own which you get from Trading Standards (via your local council) and a Movement Record Book and a Medicines Register.

And yes they need ear tags, and can be microchipped - ask your vet.

What are you getting?  Girls, boys, i mean!
I've got kunes, theyre brilliant, full of life and mischief.        Post some pictures when you get them, and hope all goes to plan

Bear in mind that microchips migrate around the body which means that they are unsuitable for any animal going for meat.

They dont need tags unless they are being moved over a year old, otherwise a temporary mark will suffice.
