Following the vet inspection, animals will be weighed and checked to see that each meet the minimum weight for age – please see the link below for a full list of age/minimum weight.

Please note that all vendors are expected to display their herd health pen cards for all individual animals. Herd Health Pen Cards are available from your Health Scheme Provider and it is advisable to give plenty of time when ordering. BVD vaccination date(s) should be supplied and printed on the cards, where appropriate.
IBR Testing and Vaccination
Vendors are reminded that from May 2023 onward it is a requirement that all animals are individually tested for IBR ahead of the sale. Any animal that tests positive for IBR should be appropriately vaccinated ahead of the sale.
