The Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Tag Program identifies Angus and Angus cross cattle.

Program Advantages

  • Tagged animals are in high demand by Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed beef programs; sell direct or through one of the 169 Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Feeder Sales across Canada (for a printable copy of the Feeder Sales, click here)

  • Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed tags visually and electronically identify Angus and Angus cross cattle. It’s our guarantee that the animal bearing the tag has a minimum of 50% Angus genetics.

  • Free third party age verification—we will take care of the paperwork for you

  • Angus tag numbers can be cross-referenced to registration papers and are an alternative form of animal identification

  • CCIA compliant tag—no other tag is required for national identification

  • Tags are eligible under the Government of Alberta’s Age Verification Incentive Program; you can get your tags for free (residents of Alberta only)

  • The use of Angus RFID tags (Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Tags) allows you to also purchase Angus dangle tags or the new Angus A-Tags

Program Requirements

  • Cattle must have at least one registered Angus parent.

  • Registration papers/semen receipt/lease of parent must be in the tag buyer’s name.

  • Also accepted as proof of eligibility are: signed affidavit from community pasture identifying the bull(s) used, embryo transfer slip, signed affidavit identifying bull in a family co-owned herd, and a signed affidavit from the original breeder identifying the registered Angus bull in the case of bred females being sold.
