February Newsletter


The New Year is in full swing and it brings with it; New Legislation for sheep ear tagging and fantastic New Products from Ritchey™.

New Legislation:

As we are sure you are aware from the 1st January 2015 new legislation was introduced in regards to sheep tagging in England and Scotland (with Wales following in January 2016). The change which has been making all the headlines is the introduction of mandatory Electronic Identification (EID) Tags for lambs intended for slaughter.


With this in mind we have produced a handy pocket sized guide summarising how sheep tags are to be applied under the new rules, the guide is available to download here: Sheep Tagging Legislation Guide, these will also be available from trade merchants* or if you would like a copy posting out simply head over to our contact us page...
