Beef Efficiency Scheme update - 2 February 2018

Further to the email sent out by ScotEID in mid-January, we would like to remind you that the deadline for entering the BES calving data for your calves, born between 2 June ,2017 and 31 December, 2017 to ScotEID, is now only a few days away and needs to be completed by the 7 February, 2018.

In addition, 7 February, 2018 is also the date set by RPID as the deadline for recording any disposals during 2017.

Some calves born in 2017 will now be reaching 400 days old so please remember that calves must be weighed at least once between 120 and 400 days.

You must record a weight on the Beef Efficiency Scheme system for every calf unless it dies or is sold before it reaches 120 days old.

If a weight has not been entered onto the system by the time a calf reaches 400 days old, you will have 15 working days to record a weight or a breach may be applied.
