Details of outcome
This consultation presents proposals to introduce efficiencies and improvements to the County Parish Holding (CPH) system in Wales.
The CPH reference number underpins a number of control systems as it is used to identify farmed holdings. Its primary purpose is to identify and trace the location of livestock as required by European Regulation for cattle sheep and goats and pigs. The CPH identifier is the base on which livestock movement reporting regimes provide a system capable of tracing livestock through every location along the supply chain.
The proposals have been developed over time in conjunction with internal and external industry stakeholders which are represented on the Livestock Identification Advisory Group (LIDAG).
