The Canadian Cattle Identification Program is an industry initiated and established trace back system designed for the containment and eradication of animal disease.
July 1, 2010
All cattle must be tagged with an approved Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag prior to moving from their current location or leaving their farm of origin.
Requirements for producers:
Leave the bar-coded tag in AND apply an RFID tag to the same animal. Cross-reference the RFID tag with the bar-coded tag in the Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS).
Tampering with and/or cutting out an approved tag is prohibited by regulations.
Cross-referencing the data will mean that all of the events uploaded by the producer against the tag and the history of the animal will be maintained. Producers can log onto their accounts at www.clia.livestockid.ca to cross-reference tags or contact CCIA’s head office by toll-free telephone at 1-877-909-2333.
