Recording a dead sheep
« on: September 04, 2014, 10:39:35 am »
So we discovered one of sheep had died yesterday, the first one we've had to deal with. She was still warm when my husband spotted her and appeared to have died really quickly, possibly from pneumonia. She seemed fine a few hours earlier! Sad times :( Anyway, I've contacted the fallen stock people and they'll come collect her later. Just wondered, how do you record this in your movements book? Obviously I can update the tally and note her tag number etc, I just wondered if fallen stock people have CPH numbers for their premises? Thanks

Get a receipt from fallen stock man and file away in your movement folder, then just change the total etc in your book. It's quite simple. No need to send off a form or anything.

Yes, you just record the change in number and that it died.  No need for a CPH in this case.  File the receipt from the fallen stock company in your movement book.

For future reference, it this also what you do if you home slaughter for meat?

Anything that comes onto or off your farm goes through the movement book so yes home kill, sending to market, private kill or death on farm all go through the movement book.
