Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) and La Financière agricole du Québec (FADQ) are pleased to announce that a new version of the cattle production declaration form is now available. It should be noted that the improvements made to this form did not result in any changes in the nature of the declarations and the information to be transmitted to these organizations.
Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) held its Annual General Meeting on June 6. This event was an opportunity to look back on the activities carried out during the past year and expose the work undertaken for the advancement of traceability both on the provincial and federal level. This meeting was also the place to highlight the projects undertaken by the various departments of the organization, particularly in the horticultural and beef sector, the development of computerized tools, as well as the retention of identifiers.

The Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) Board of Directors has announced its decision to end the ASRA program payment method for sheep ear tags. It should be noted that this payment option will no longer be offered as of March 14, 2014.
The production of ovine tags with the letter "A" will cease at the end of November. We would like to remind to lamb producers that, for lambings anticipated between now and the end of December 2013, they have until December 6 to order and pay ear tags with the letter of the current year.
