Animal movement

Licensing is in place which controls the movement of a range of animals including sheep, pigs and cows.

The conditions which apply to these movements vary depending on the:

  • Type of animal
  • Type of trip
  • Destination.

These conditions are constantly being altered so it is important to keep up to date with the latest changes - see Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (external link) to find out more.

How do I apply?

In Wigan Borough, you must apply for a licence through Lancashire County Council (external link).
