The Herd Number in question was end-dated on 1 September 2010.  According to the Corporate Customer System, which is the centralised database containing details of all customers who interact with my Department, this action was carried out on the 29 September 2010.

An ER1 Application was subsequently received by the Regional Veterinary Office on the 15 May 2015 to reactivate this Herd-Number. This application was processed and the Herd-number was made active from 26 May 2015.

According to the Department's records, this is a Cereal Number, and therefore never had stock. The Herd-Number was Dormant from 2002 until 26 May 2015 when it was reactivated again for cereals.

No payments issued under this Herd Number from 2006 to 2016.
