All cattle must have C.C.I.A. tags in their ears before they can be sold. It is the law. There is no slippage allowed anymore. 100% compliance is needed ever since the B.S.E. problem. We don’t make the rules, but we get fined if we do not follow them and you could get fined too.
If you are shipping cattle and some do not have their tags in, please load them separate on the truck, so that they can go directly to the tagging squeeze upon arrival. Neither of us wants to get fined and the C.F.I.A. inspectors are here regularly.
