EID TAGGING OF HISTORIC FLOCK
Please consider double-tagging your historic sheep flock to optimise marketing options, particularly from 1st January 2015.
There are financial implications to consider if your historic flock are not individually identified by the end of 2014.
Therefore, we suggest sheep vendors take the opportunity when handling stock at weaning/tupping to put in new tags and note them in the flock register. It is important from the end of the year that older sheep are electronically tagged before they are moved, especially if they are being sold for further feeding.
Please see our leaflet for further information.
