Pink Ketchum Kurl-Lock tag to be revoked from CSIP by end of October

Ottawa, ON (September 15, 2017) – Canadian sheep farmers and ranchers should expect the pink metal Ketchum Kurl-Lock #3 tag to be revoked from the Canadian Sheep Identification Program (CSIP) at the end of October 2017. In an upcoming meeting of national ID program administrators, stakeholders and government representatives scheduled for early October, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will recommend revoking the pink metal Ketchum Kurl-Lock tag. In a meeting earlier this week, the Canadian Sheep Federation Board of Directors elected to support the tag’s revocation, as they considered a recommendation from the CSIP Working Group to do so.
