KEY

*Some buyers in England’s Low Risk Area, e.g. those operating Licensed Finishing Units (LFUs) may insist on cattle from the Low TB Area having a Pre-Movement Test.

**Homebred cattle originating from a CHeCS level 10 herd moving into the Low TB Area of Wales will not require a Post-Movement Test

***All CHeCS herds will require a Post-Movement test of purchased animals unless they originate from CHeCS herds of level 10.

**** Pre-movement testing is not required as long as the animal has spent its whole life in Low Risk Area herds.
