Register your interest in a health and welfare review of your livestock

To be eligible for a review you must have one of the following:

  • 11 or more beef or dairy cattle
  • 21 or more sheep
  • 51 or more pigs

The animals must be registered in England and you must be responsible for their welfare.

If you’ve received the lump sum payment to leave or retire from farming you’re still eligible for a review.

Your business must have:

  • a single business identifier (SBI) linked to a county parish holding (CPH) number registered in England
  • a CPH number that can be permanent or temporary

You can only apply for a review on a CPH registered in England. You cannot apply for a review on CPHs registered in Wales or Scotland.

The CPH number cannot be:

  • an 8000 number used for abattoirs, pet food manufacturers, racing pigeon establishments and showgrounds
  • a 9000 number used for poultry keepers

During this phase we’re inviting applications from farmers who are one of the following:

  • eligible for the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) - this means the SBI must have at least 5 ha of BPS eligible land and 5 or more BPS entitlements on 16 May 2022
  • anticipating making a 2023 BPS claim
