Red Tractor issues new guidance on trailers used for off-farm transport

Red Tractor has issued a guidance document covering how standard OT.a – which requires members to display their Red Tractor membership number, along with trailer identification number, on the sides and rear of trailers used for off-farm transport – can be met.

The OT.a standard was introduced last October with the aim of ensuring traceability throughout the supply chain.

 

Displaying membership and trailer numbers allows members to use their own trailers to deliver grain off-farm without being a member (and paying membership fees) of another assurance scheme, according to Red Tractor.

Off farm

 

Transport is defined as ‘off-farm’ when a grain passport is required for moving grain, or when sugar beet is being moved to a processor.

 

There are various ways in which membership numbers can be displayed on a trailer, says Red Tractor. Examples are a printed, laminated number which is applied to the trailer; a number plate created and applied to the trailer or painted numbers on the trailer.

 

The full guidance document, which aims to answer frequently asked questions, can be found at assurance.redtractor.org.uk/contentfiles/Farmers-6916.pdf?_=636594719816933890
