Last time I moved pigs, it was all paperwork and now it's online.

Reading through the stuff, it insists all moves are pre-notified. But, I don't know what I'm getting, or moving, if anything, as I'm buying from the local market.

I'm all registered with BPEX, but unsure if I can actually do anything until I've moved the pigs.

Do I need to do anything up front?

Thanks.

its the seller that sets up the move - you then respond to it

Magic, thanks.

I'll just turn up with my cash and trailer, and worry later, then.

They are always a bargain.

I am not allowed to go with both. One or the other. I can't be trusted.

I went to buy some chairs for the camping barn, and came home with 6 alpacas!

I thought people mostly bought them as ornaments, don't they stand them on the mantelpiece?

the market will give you a licence all you have to do is confirm you have the pigs once home either online or on the phone. its all pretty easy now.
