Canadian Sheep Federation Press Release: Ottawa, ON – All tags approved in the Canadian Sheep Identification Program (CSIP) are subject to increased program fees, in keeping with the newly ratified agreement with Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA).
As of December 1, 2018, livestock producers will need a veterinary prescription to access medically important antimicrobials. Due to changes by Health Canada, these antimicrobials will no longer be sold at authorized medicine sales outlets (e.g. farm supply stores). Producers will only be able to access them through veterinary clinics, pharmacies or mixes in feed from commercial feed mills.
