The cervids producers have until December 31, 2010 to identify their animals. All ear tags have to be activated by ATQ (even for animals that were identified before the entry of the law). If you have less than 6 cervids, the identification is not mandatory.
However, all cervids transported toward a slaughterhouse or a stakteholder must be identified following the established regulations. Please note that every owner and caretaker of cervids has to register with ATQ, regardless of the quantity they own or care for.
You would like to order ear tags or you have questions? Call the toll-free number 1 866 270-4319, Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. A customer services agent will be glad to answer you.
Please note that our offices will closed for the Holiday Season from Thursday December 23rd at noon to Monday January 3rd 7:30 am.
