As of Thursday 10th November 2016, a mandatory field for an animal’s production type, e.g. Dairy, has been added to all EID tags in the LIC Webshop. This will appear when any EID tags are being ordered.
The tag order will error if this field is not selected.
Why has this field been added?
NAIT have advised they now require the production type for animal tags to be uploaded to NAIT. To ensure that we are not making any assumptions about the tag types being ordered we have worked in conjunction with our tag suppliers to make changes to the information we send in a tag order. This can then be passed onto NAIT.
Due to the TB slaughter levy’s being different for production types, having the customer select the production type at the time of the tag order makes this information more accurate.
