Beef & Lamb

Residency Calculator

The Red Tractor Beef and Lamb scheme requires beef animals to be held on an assured holding for at least 90 days and sheep at least 60 days before the stock can be described, and thus sold as farm assured.

The residency calculator works to determine if the period has been met and/or the date when the required residency period would be completed.

Select either beef or lamb from the dropdown box to determine the correct timelines for your livestock.

Please note that the date of movement onto the holding is not counted as an eligible day within the residency period.
