Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) announces that a new information sheet will be available to cattle, sheep and cervid producers and stakeholders, as of December 1, 2014, to replace the existing order form for tags and accessories.
The production of ovine tags with the letter "B" will cease at the end of November. We would like to remind lamb producers that, for lambings anticipated between now and the end of December 2014, they have until December 5th to order and pay ear tags with the letter of the current year.
As of December 8th, ovine ear tags with the letter "B" will be out of stock and will be replaced with the letter "C" for lambs that will be born starting in the month of January.
In 2015, the "C" corresponds to the highlighted letter in accordance with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation.
Ovine producers may order their tags by contacting us immediately.
Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) is announcing that, starting September 15, 2014, dairy producers and industry stakeholders will no longer have to affix new electronic Canadian tags on animals imported from the United States if these animals are identified with American-approved tags.
