Cattle identification



To comply with the current cattle identification legislation, all cattle must be double tagged with identical ear tags (one in each ear). Cattle must arrive at the abattoir with the correct tags and corresponding passport.

These regulations are in place for disease control and also for maintaining consumer confidence in traceability, as a Vertically Integrated supermarket this is key for Morrisons.

It is equally important to ensure to send the correct licences and food chain information forms. Not doing so will result in the delay of slaughtering and payment for your animals.
