Sheep EID

Sheep EID
As of the 1st January 2015, the rules regarding sheep identification changed to be as follows:

• Sheep keepers in England are no longer permitted to use non-EID tags for lambs which are born on or after 1st January 2015. Single EID slaughter tags must be used in lambs not being retained for breeding.

• Lambs born before 1st January 2015 are still permitted to carry a non-EID tag and do not need to be retagged.

• In Wales, non EID slaughter tags can still be used until 1st January 2016.

• Please contact DEFRA or Llywodraeth Cymru should you have any concerns regarding future tagging.
