Had the fifth visit from the department (Agriculture) since xmas today, first 2 where for cross compliance, the second for the pigs and the final two for the cattle. We passed the first two, failed the pig check for not having an up to date movement record (5% penalty from 2015 payment) and failed the cattle check for Eric the bull, Dougary the bull and Eddie the bull calf having lost an ear tag each( but had 28 days to correct it) they came today to recheck and we passed after retagging them!!! So much for the Scottish governments changes to policy that should result in the need for less visits!!!! Add to that the 2 visits to their office to sign forms that should have been done during their visits. Hopefully we wont be seeing them for a while!!!
