County Parish Holding (CPH) Number
Pigs are considered as livestock; so you will need to register for a County Parish Holding Number (CPH) to keep a pig.
If you are residing in England these can be obtained from the Rural Payments Agency (RPA). There is currently no charge for this and it can be organised with a quick five minute telephone call. The telephone number is 0845 603 7777. This normally takes 1-2 weeks to process, however can be processed quicker if you request it over the phone.
If residing in Wales & Scotland you will have to contact your respective Agricultural Department. The process is slightly different in that you have the forms sent out to you and fill them in yourself. You might have to submit an outline of the property, this can be done easily enough using google maps, printing it off and circling it. Allow for extra time as they seem to take a little bit longer in processing (2-3weeks) so bare this in mind when organising your application.
Welsh Agricultural Department - 01597 823777
Scottish Agriultural Department - 01315 568400
