Sheep Producer

The Canadian Cattle Identification Program is an industry initiated and established trace back system designed for the containment and eradication of animal disease.

Important Guidelines for Producers

The CCIA encourages all producers to replace lost tags at every possible intervention.
Tags should be applied according to manufacturer's directions.
If you apply a CCIA tag to an animal that is already tagged, the CCIA requires notification of the cross-referenced numbers.
CCIA tags should never be re-used.
Records of the ID number of re-tagged animals (ie. animals who have lost tags) should be kept along with any known information of where they came from.
CCIA tags should not be removed from an animal that is already tagged unless the number has been retired from the CCIA database as in the case of dead or exported animals.
Please ensure numbers on CCIA approved tags remain visible.
