** Note on Sheep Tagging **

There are no sheep tagging sites off the farm of origin that can legally apply sheep tags. ASL is a licensed tagging station for cattle but not for sheep, all sheep and lambs must be tagged with a CSIP approved tag when they leave the flock of origin. Current CFIA fines for untagged sheep are $1300 for the producer, $1300 for the transporter and $1300 for ASL (for accepting untagged sheep). Please take a moment when loading sheep and lambs to ensure that all sheep are tagged.

** CCIA Tag Changes Coming in July 2010**

OTTAWA, May, 28, 2010: Effective 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. These tags will replace the bar-coded dangle tags.

Producers cannot remove older bar code tags already in the ears of cattle leaving the farm - RFID (button) tags must be added in addition to already in place dangle tags.

Sellers and Buyers please note; as of June 1, Canada Post will not be delivering any mail without full civic address; producers are encouraged to contact ASL and provide full mailing information to avoid processing delays.
