Approved Ear Tag Manufacturers will be aware that there are some planned system changes currently in progress. These changes will impact the existing Sheep and Goat Ear Tag Allocation System (S&GETAS) and the Cattle Ear Tag Allocation System (CETAS).
These two systems will be replaced by a new Livestock Information Ear Tag Allocation System (until recently, the working name was LUIS or the Livestock Unique Identifier System). This will be the single system in which to order ear tag numbers for ALL species.
The Ear Tag Allocation System has been designed with simplicity in mind and will bring the screens up to date and provide an intuitive user experience. Benefits of self-serve functionality, previously not available, will ultimately improve existing processes and operations.
COVID-19 may have given us unprecedented challenges, especially when implementing a new service, but Livestock Information are confident that they will deliver the new tagging service remotely mid-2021
