PigTRACE Ear Tag Price Increase Effective August 1, 2019

With increased foreign animal disease risk putting traceability at the centre of preparedness and zoning activities, PigTRACE is more important than ever.

For the past 10 years, the industry has benefitted from federal government funding for the creation and the on-going operation of the traceability program – PigTRACE.

As of 2018 the federal government will no longer fund basic operational costs. This represents a $200,000 reduction in annual funding. Federal initiatives will support new projects to improve the program however, which we will continue to pursue.

To ensure PigTRACE operations can continue, we are increasing the price of PigTRACE visual ear tags on August 1, 2019 by $0.20 per small tag and $0.35 per large tag. Electronic ear tags will remain unchanged. The new pricing is listed in the table below.
