The Cattle Identification Regulations 2007 introduce two important changes to current procedures.

Firstly, temporary calf passports have been abolished. This means all cattle must have a full passport before they are moved off their holding of birth, and can no longer be moved using the current cattle passport application form.

Secondly, changes have been made to the late passport application procedure. Where applications have not been submitted within the required 27-day period, keepers may choose to have their calf and its mother DNA tested to prove it is the offspring of the mother stated on the application form.
