Pig keepers' guidance
Whether you keep one pig as a pet or a commercial herd you need to follow certain rules regarding the identification of your animal.
The Pigs (Records, Identification and Movement) (Wales) Order (PRIMO) legislation changed on 25th November 2011.
Pig keepers are reminded that a haulier summary (HS) document is used to move pigs.
Before pig movements take place, the keeper must pre-notify the British Pig Executive (BPEX) online or via the Meat and Livestock Commercial Services Limited (MLCSL) bureau service.
Any changes to the movement information after pre-notifying can be made within 24 hours of the move taking place by phone, fax, post, text message or online.
The bureau service managed by MLCSL will provide a free service for those keepers who do not or cannot report movements online. Those keepers can either prenotify by phone, fax or post details of the move to the bureau service.
Moves to markets or collection centres do not need to be pre-notified. A paper copy of the haulier summary can be completed by hand on the day of the move. The market or collection centre will notify both the details of the off farm move and on move to their premises to BPEX on the day the animals arrive. Copies of the blank haulier summary will be available from markets or from BPEX/MLCSL.
