WHEN YOU HAVE SOLD YOUR SHEEP - it would be very helpful if you would inform the Secretary, or email the Society as we wish to keep these pages as up to date as possible. Thank you.

While all sheep advertised on this website are registered and should meet breed standards, they have not been inspected by the Society. If you want advice on what to look for when you are buying sheep, please contact the Secretary. Alternatively sheep entered into the annual Breed Sale at Cirencester Market are all 'card graded' and only approved breeding stock is sold.

When you are buying Cotswolds, apart from at the Annual Breed Sale, there are a few things you should be aware of:

All Cotswolds sold as 'pedigree' or  'registered' of whatever age, must be registered with the Society by the breeder who has to be a member of the Society. The buyer cannot register sheep. 

Always ask to see the sheep's paperwork before purchasing - if in doubt please contact the Society as we have details of all sheep registered with us.

Lambs can be Birth Notified - this does not mean they necessarily reach the breed standard. Be aware - only the breeder can upgrade a lamb's status to Registered (which means it is judged by the breeder to reach the breed standard) - we strongly advise you to make sure all stock is registered BEFORE purchase.

Only 2 registered sheep can produce a lamb which can be registered. A term such as 'pure bred' is not the same as 'registered'. Such sheep may indeed be Cotswold but they are not, and never can be, registered pedigree sheep.

Please note that you must be aware of all tagging and movement legislation before moving sheep - all breeding sheep must be double tagged (with one EID tag and its matching pair) before leaving the farm of birth. All movements must be to a registered holding and accompanied by a completed Movement License. Please visit GOV.UK for full details. The Society 'Breed Tag' can be fitted in addition to the two official tags - it cannot be used on its own.

You may like to download two useful forms to help you if you are new to sheep keeping. The first is The New Livestock Keeper's Guide and the second is a Veterinary Record Sheet. Legislation does change so please use the Livestock Keeper's Guide as a starting point only. The downloadable Information for New Members is a useful guide to the basics of keeping Cotswold sheep.

For any questions concerning buying sheep - please do contact the Society and we will do all we can to help you - we want you to enjoy your Cotswold experience!!
