Cattle keeper

A cattle keeper is a legal or natural entity responsible for cattle and may also be the owner or the person dealing with the breeding, protection, slaughtering, purchase and sale, transport, showing, and other use of cattle. All cattle keepers must be registered in the Register of Livestock owners and are responsible for correctly marking the cattle at their agricultural holding in a timely manner and that correct data on the movement of cattle have been informed to the Central Register of Cattle in a timely manner. A keeper is obligated to keep records about the cattle at the agricultural holding. A keeper may also perform zoo-technical tasks, for which they must be suitably trained.
