A proportion of the ewes will be blood tested annually within 3 months after lambing. Only females that have bred should be tested.
The number of ewes tested will depend on the status of the flock.
If EAE Accredited ewe lambs are purchased with the intention of selling them the following year as EAE Accredited gimmers then an application should be made to join the Gimmering Scheme otherwise sheep will loose their EAE Accredited Status.
