Livestock record-keeping: Environmental Stewardship

Find out what livestock records Environmental Stewardship agreement holders need to keep.

Applies to England



You need to keep livestock records if your Environmental Stewardship agreement:

  • started on or after 1 January 2013
  • has an option that requires you to:

    • graze a field at a particular stocking density
    • not increase your stocking above the existing level
    • graze or exclude stock at specific times of the year

You can keep your records using these forms or your own record-keeping system if it includes the necessary information.

See the main Environmental Stewardship page for more information about the scheme.
