Scrapies tags are part of the USDA scrapies eradication program. The tags and the tagger are free, but you are required to get a premises i.d. in order to get them. Some people are opposed to the premises i.d. But, if you don't care, just call your state branch of the USDA (here it is the KSDA - Kansas State Dept. Of Ag.) and they take the info over the phone and you get your tags and tagger in the mail. They assign the premises i.d. number.Sunrise said:Ok I have heard of thoses but what are they?
Here is the link for the Wis. Dept. of Ag.:Shazzy said:Does anyone know where I can get the tagging rules in my state? Or if you live in WI, could you please tell me what the laws are here? I think it's required, but I wanted to double check. Thanks!
Alyssa, can you tell me why you would tag with two tags? I have thought about doing it but I do not want to put any more expense then I have to. I figured if they are free, then I will just use them.alyssa_romine said:you can contact your state USDA office or go to their website. I use scrapies tags and I am going to start doing incividual id tags. You can get them at most feed stores or farm supply stores. Get the sheep and goat tags, I have a pic of one in my avatar. I can give you a close up if you want.
