Canadian Sheep Identification Program Fees Increasing Today
For Immediate Release
Ottawa, ON (February 3, 2020) – Effective today, Canadian Sheep Identification Program (CSIP) approved Shearwell tags are subject to program fee increases originally noted in the January 4, 2019, press release. The earlier release noted that fee increases resulting from the ratification of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) and Canadian Sheep Federation (CSF) would “take place over the course of the next two years, varying by tag type according to the terms of the agreement and as tag inventories are replenished”.
The most recent fee increase will affect Shearwell tags at retail outlets starting today, raising the base price of ASET Single tags by $0.10/tag and ASET Double tags by $0.10/pair.
The Canadian Sheep Federation is Canada’s legitimate national sector-wide producer organization representing 100% of Canadian sheep production by virtue of our members, programs and policies.
