The new EIDCymru electronic sheep movement reporting system for Wales has seen a successful start and has been well received by the industry since last week’s launch.

 

The service went live on January 18 and abattoirs, markets and collection centres across Wales have been actively using the new website and submitting data electronically.

 

Farmers have also shown a keen interest with more than 300 registering to use EIDCymru via the new website.

 

“The system has been live for just over a week and the uptake by members of the Welsh sheep industry is encouraging,” said John Richards, technical Implementation lead at EIDCymru.

 

“The abattoirs, markets and collection centres are on board and sheep movement data has been inputted directly into the database.

 

“Despite being a relatively quiet time of year for sheep movements, the number of farmers registering their interest and calling the EIDCymru service to find out more has been very promising. Several farmers have already successfully completed their sheep movements online,” he added.

 

The dedicated EIDCymru service has been set up to help and support sheep farmers who wish to report their sheep movements using the new eidcymru.org website.

 

Rhian Jones, EIDCymru’s bureau co-ordinator said: “We have dealt with a large number of calls since the launch and are happy to assist farmers with any of their queries and concerns on 01970 636959.

 

“It is not compulsory for farmers to report their sheep movements electronically, but they may find that EIDCymru offers a practical and efficient way to report their moves.”

 

Farmers who are unable to access the internet or choose not to use the EIDCymru website can continue to submit a paper movement licence (AML1).

 

The completed movement licence must now be sent to: EIDCymru, Tŷ Merlin, Parc Merlin, Aberystwyth, SY23 3FF.
