There are a large selection of breeding cattle available for import from France. This is an excellent way of either beginning a herd or improving an established herd through introducing new genetics.
The procedure for importing is relatively straightforward. The French Gascon Society help select the cattle to your specifications and deal with all the French requirements. Once your cattle arrive in the UK, your local Animal Health office deal with the UK requirements. The rules change occasionally, but at the moment, a period of isolation and a warble fly treatment, administered by your vet, is all that is required.
