Number of cattle movement events (moves; for example, the movement of a trailer - which may contain a number of cattle - from farm to market)(moves) in Ireland, by day of week and by risk category, during 2016. ‘High Risk’ moves represent moves where animals are traded between herds in Ireland (including trade via a market), as well as a small number of imports; whereas ‘Low Risk’ moves represent moves to slaughter or an export point. In this study, a movement from farm to market and subsequent onward movement to farm were counted as two movement events.
