Abstract
Part 2 of the Order provides that cattle, goats, and sheep, may not be moved from premises if specified animals have been moved on to those premises in the previous 6 days. It also provides that pigs may not be moved from premises if pigs have been moved on to those premises in the previous 20 days or cattle, goats, or sheep have been moved on to those premises in the previous 6 days. It provides for exceptions from these requirements (arts. 6, 7 and 8 and Schedules 1 and 2). Schedule 1 lists the movements off premises which are permitted during the standstill period and Schedule 2 lists the movements on to premises that do not trigger the standstill period.
