Information for Participants

Sheep Individual numbers must now be reported on AML1 forms as well as in the movement book for individually identified animals when transferring from your keepership. Pateley Bridge Auction Centre is approved as a Central Point Recording Centre (CPRC), so electronically identified animals passing through our auction centre do not need to be listed individually on the AML1 when leaving the holding. We will read them and then supply you and the purchaser with a copy of the numbers read. We can sell sheep with manually read slaughter tags provided the AML1 form is fully completed with the number of each flock. All sheep must be tagged according to the DEFRA regulations.

Cattle must have 2 ear tags with the primary yellow tag readable on BOTH sides. Cattle over 42 days of age from herds within a 1 or 2 year testing interval must be pre-movement tested within 60 days. Vendors must supply accurate ear tag numbers to the Market Office.


All livestock vehicles must be cleansed and disinfected as soon as possible after unloading. If you wish to disinfect on return you must complete a declaration form, available from the Market Office. A free jetwash is available on site for the disinfection of trailers bringing animals to market.
