Movement Cert Applications Up 77%

This year alone, movement cert applications in Herdwatch were up by 77%. We delved more into the figures showing us what Counties were buying the most calves. We looked at calves bought in from marts and through farm-to-farm movements, some of the results came as a surprise to us. 

So what counties buy the most calves?

How many calves have each county bought this year?

       COUNTY               AMOUNT PURCHASED
1)   CORK                                     2,260
2)   TIPPERARY                           2,048
