ICSA calls for tags rethink

ICSA sheep chairman Mervyn Sunderland has called for the electronic tagging of sheep to be scrapped or at least postponed for 12 months.

"EID was supposed to be introduced on January 1 but has been put off to sometime in the first half of the year. It makes no sense to introduce this half way through a season and will only add confusion," Mr Sunderland said.
