Sheep Flock Registers record details of the number of sheep on a farm and details of their movements. Flock Registers supplied by the Department of Agriculture allow you to record this information.
Under the National Sheep Identification System (NSIS) it is a legal requirement for sheep farmers to keep records of the individual animal identification number attached to the animals.
It is also a legal requirement to keep a written record of the movement of animals onto or off the farm. Flock Registers are issued to all registered sheep flock owners to allow them to record this information.
Requests for Flock Registers can be made by getting in touch with your Local District Veterinary Office or by contacting:
Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
