Title:
Canadian Cattle Identification Program

Image ID:
B026

Description:
The Canadian Cattle Identification Program is a mandatory program that involves ear tagging all Canadian cattle with barcoded ear tags by the time they leave their herd of origin. The ear tag stays with the animal to the point of carcass inspection at a processing plant. If a problem is detected, the ear tag allows a more efficient search to identify the source of the problem.
