Sale Regulations

Cattle

All cattle presented for sale at Clare Marts require 2 tags and a valid passport signed by the current owner/keeper.

The Following Test  Requirements apply:

Tuberculosis Testing (TB)

All cattle 6 weeks and over including calves have to be within 12 months of TB test.  The animal's passport will need to have the date of test, showing when the animal was tested.

Brucellosis Testing

It is no longer a requirement for the pre-movement of stock.

 

BVD

All calves born from 1st Janaury 2013 must be BVD Tested

Export Testing

In order for animals to be eligible for the live export market they have to be within 30 days of TB test and must be from a complete clear herd.  If animals are outside the 30 days then they can be tested by the exporter provided it is at least 42 days from their last TB test.  All animals between 30 days and 42 days of their last T.B. test are neither eligable for export or to be tested.  So when selling stock that may be suitable for export make sure they are within 30 day test or more than 42 days since their previous test. There is no need to have export certs attached to the passports as Clare Marts receives this infromation from the department.

Sheep

All sheep presented for sale require the owner to have a sheep dispatch form for each lot and to be appropriately tagged as per The Department of Agriculture regulations.
