We've put this page together to help remind farmers with sheep and goats of their obligation to complete the annual sheep and goat inventory on 1 December. This information relates to English keepers only.

When do I need to complete the annual inventory?

Towards the end of November, you will receive the annual inventory form and guidance from Defra. You must complete the annual inventory with the number of sheep and goats on your holding on 1 December 2022 and return the completed form by 31 December 2022.

You can also complete the form online at the website: Record and submit your annual inventory
