Non-EU breeding animals
EUCAS accredited producers may seek departmental approval for Non-EUCAS animals to be brought onto an EU PIC for the purposes of breeding. All Non-EU breeding animals must be HGP free and will not be eligible for EU status. Non-EU breeding females remain in the system as not eligible for the EU, but their offspring will be eligible.
The Non-EU females must have been born and bred on the farm of origin, be properly NLIS identified and attested to be HGP free. The Non-EU breeding bulls must be HGP free. You may purchase cows, heifers or pregnant females but cows with calves at foot are not permitted.
