Proper NLID Tagging and Tattooing

Proper identification is the backbone of having registered cows. Without it, the background of an animal is unknown and therefore the ability to predict that animal's genetic performance accurately is impossible.

Prior to registration and before reaching the age of six (6) months, each animal must be completely and permanently identified by tattoo markings. Alternatively, identification can be done by means of electronic identification devices (RFID) or NLID tags in both ears of the animal, whose use has been approved by the Board of Directors.

National Identification Dairy (NLID) or Agri-Traçabilité Québec (ATQ) tags should be used as the primary identification for registration purposes. Animals registered in this way must have one tag in each ear with the same number on them. The number inscribed on the tag will be that animal's registration number. It is not mandatory to tattoo when using NLID or ATQ tags as the primary identification method, in accordance with the by-laws of the Association. These tags are the same for all dairy breeds. Hence mixed herds do not require 2 or 3 different types of tags for each dairy breed.

To order NLID tags phone 1-877-771-6543 (English) or 1-877-771-4625 (French), visit www.nlid.org or write to NLID, P.O. Box 2065, Brantford, ON, N3T 5W5.

To order ATQ tags contact 1-866-270-4319 or visit the ATQ website at www.agri-tracabilite.qc.ca.

If an animal loses a tag, please contact NLID or ATQ to order a replacement. A replacement tag will be printed free of charge and sent to you. Replacement tags have the same number as the former (lost) tag.

To ensure the best retention of NLID tags:
1. Place panel or button tag in the centre of the ear, between the two ribs.
2. Place the metal tag on the upper flap of the ear, a short distance from the head, 90 degrees from the edge of the ear, with enough space left for the calf's ear to grow into it.

If tattoo markings are the identification tool used, the Association will allot to any owner of one or more Jersey females, a set of identification letters and/or numbers for his exclusive use at the prescribed fee. Only one such set may be issued to any one owner.

These identification letters are to be tattooed in the right ear of each animal born his property. In addition, each animal is to be identified by a tattoo in its left ear, consisting of a consecutive number (allocated by the owner at birth) followed by the unique year letter, allocated by the Association. An allowance for all tattoo markings to be placed in one ear is made in the case where NLID tags are also used. Once an animal has been identified, the same identification may not be used for any other animal of the same breed.
