Handling Proceedures

Image ID:

A beef farmer inserts an ear tag into the tagger, preparing to tag one of his animals. The tags used in the Canadian cattle industry are equipped with radio frequency technology to improve traceability. The handling chute behind him is used to hold animals still while being handled. This reduces the risk of injury to the farmer and the cattle.
