For non-monitored flocks wishing to export sheep/goats to Northern Ireland only, a new temporary Scrapie Qualifying status has been created.
This is a new temporary status within the Great Britain Scrapie Monitored Scheme (SMS).
Animals from flocks with Scrapie Qualifying status are not Scrapie Monitored as defined in the Scrapie Monitoring Scheme rules, but they are eligible for export to Northern Ireland under a limited derogation within the relevant EU Regulations.
Important to Note: To obtain Scrapie Qualifying status, flock owners/keepers must apply to join the SMS on or before 31 December 2021 and undertake to comply with SMS rules for the next three years after which they will progress to SMS (Controlled Risk) status.
You can download the Scrapie Qualifying Notes for further details about Qualifying status
Additional details on the process for moving breeding sheep and goats from GB to NI are available from APHA and DAERA
For more details and links to all of the relevant documents, go to: Scrapie monitoring for export | SRUC
In addition, Guidance notes and veterinary support certificate guidance notes have been updated, to include the complementary scrapie qualifying status attestation made available for use at:Domestic ovine and caprine animals intended for breeding or production to the European Union: certificate 8220 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

The Annual Clun forest Sheep Breeders Society Sale took place in Ludlow Market last Friday with buyers attending from as far a field as Aberdeenshire. The thousand pound barrier was breached twice in the male section with top price of 1,300 gns being paid by Richard Price, Trewyrlod to Evan Jones for his homebred shearling ram WALTON DONALD. The other thousand pound animal was another shearling ram, PEN-Y-WERN DAVID, who made 1,000 gns for A.E.Williams & Son and found a new home with L.E.Lloyd & Sons, Sarnesfield. The Champion of the day, PEN-Y-WERN DAZ, also came from A.E.Williams & Son, who are celebrating their 75th Anniversary as Clun breeders and was sold for 900 gns to Burwarton Estates. The top price for a ram lamb, HONDDU ENDEAVOUR, came from I.T.Davies & Son and was also snapped up by L.E.Lloyd & Sons. The highest priced Aged Ram, KIBEE CAPTAIN came from Kira Newey and sold for 160 gns to W.H.Morse, Pembrokshire.
In the Female Section the breed record equaling price £300 was made twice but prices in general were slightly disappointing with some cracking females selling for very reasonable prices. The first £300 price was made by Mike Eckley, Brecon with COURT-LLACCA DEMI and set a new record for a shearling ewe which went to David Beech, Derbyshire. Mr Beech then went on to buy a pair of strong ewe lambs for the same price from new breeders R. & P.Whitticase, Churchstoke.
