Final Day to Comment: RFID Tag Requirement

USDA-APHIS is seeking public comment on a proposal to eliminate analog ear tags as an approved device for use in interstate movement of cattle that are required to be identified by the traceability regulations. The deadline to comment is today, Monday, October 5, 2020 by 11:59 pm EDT.

Kansas Cattlemen's Association (KCA) supports identifying cattle through visual tags and brands and supports a voluntary producer initiative rather than a federal mandatory animal ID system.

KCA opposes the proposed elimination of the analog ear tags. The proposal places an unnecessary burden on independent cattle producers who receive no benefit. We encourage you as a producer to comment in opposition.
