Farm Matters can report your cattle passport and movement notifications direct to British Cattle Movement Service (BCMS) using the Internet. Simply enter the birth/movement into your records and click the BCMS send button, it couldn't be easier. There is also a facility to check your records against those held by BCMS, we call this a CTS Cross Check.
