16/02/2017: ScotMoves launch and early statistics

ScotMoves was successfully launched on the 1st January with full help-desk support. Over 2,600 cattle keepers have since registered their main holdings along with the additional holdings they are using to keep cattle. Since going live, ScotMoves have recorded over 70,000 cattle movements between within-business holdings and the number of movements is currently around 10,000 per week. This number is expected to rise significantly in the spring time when cattle begin moving out of their winter accommodation. The new system is a success in terms of knowing centrally where all Scottish cattle currently are, which will aid disease control, disease eradication and public health.
