Just got a phone call from a fellow breeder who purchased two nigerians from Ohio. Apparently they were at the vet for a pre-travel checkup (she drove them home to NY) and the vet put in scrapie tags. My friend wants them removed. First of, I don't know Ohio regulation (especially with the ongoing NAIS and other ag organizations ID programs) and she wanted to know if you have to keep the tags in when she shows them at her fair in the spring. Secondly, what kind of tool would she use to remove? I haven't had to deal with this, and as far as I know a tattoo and/or microchip has been all that's needed to show, at least under ADGA. But I'm no expert so looking for answers. Thanks.
