Change the marking of ovine tags for 2013
The production of ovine tags with the letter "Z" 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, they have until November 30th to order and pay ear tags with the letter of the current year.
As of December 3rd, ovine ear tags with the letter "Z" will be out of stock and replaced with the letter "A" for lambs that will be born starting in the month of January. In 2013, the "A" corresponds to the highlighted letter in accordance with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation.
