Cattle Traceability & TaggingAcceptable Forms of Official Identification
A message to Agri-Life extension agents, veterinarians, and other interested parties
The TAHC is seeking to develop partnerships with interested parties to help distribute free tags. While producers may apply the tags themselves, extension agents and veterinarians will have the opportunity to provide tagging services to their clients.
If you are interested in distributing tags, please contact the TAHC Animal Disease Traceability Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, 1-800-550-8242 ext. 733, or your local TAHC Regional office. Your business name and contact information can be added to a searchable list of tag providers posted on the TAHC homepage.
