Movements to Scotland

Cattle moving to Scotland from England or Wales require a clear pre-movement test within 60 days prior to movement. This includes cattle from the four-yearly testing area of England.

Post-movement tests are required for cattle moving to Scotland from an annual testing area in England or Wales no fewer than 60 days and no more than 120 days after their arrival in Scotland.
