The moves ‘external’ to your business, which are; private sale moves, moves to and from shows, and moves relating to the hire of bulls are reported to the new system, ScotMoves+.

See our video on how to send movements to ScotMoves (internal movements)

The moves that are ‘internal’, i.e. within business moves, must continue to be reported to ScotMoves, if you use additional holdings. In Breedr you can add in your main holding and sub holdings and associate them to locations in your account. When you move an animal from one location to another this will generate a local movement for you to approve.
