The Canadian Angus RFID Indicator Program is an official program that identifies animals with a minimum of 50% Angus genetics. Those animals are permanently identified with an Angus indicator, which is CCIA compliant and stays with the animal for life.

All cattle in the program must have at least one purebred Angus parent. Calves must be sired by a registered Angus bull and/or born to a registered Angus cow. If you buy Angus animals, request to have the registration paper transferred into your name.

Merely tagging calves does not guarantee extra dollars. Producers consistently tell us that Angus indicators are a way of documenting information and adding market value to cattle. Angus indicators are a marketing tool to capture potential premiums.

Anyone who has animals that meet the eligibility requirements can purchase Angus indicators. No membership is required. The Canadian Angus Indicator program has two brands of RFID indicators available. The Allflex RFID indicator and the Temple Tag ComfortEar® Angus RFID indicator. Both are carried by the CCIA. You are eligible for 50 indicators per transferred, registered Angus bull for each calf crop. Indicators are sold in packages of 25.

For all your other supplemental tagging needs, please refer to your local supplier.

Angus producers take pride in the breed and in the work they do. They want to show the world their Angus genetics and the Canadian Angus tags are a great way to visually confirm their Angus genetics.

Benefits of using Canadian Angus RFID Indicators:

Red Angus
One way to get red Angus cattle into Angus-branded beef programs in Canada is for them to be tagged with our Canadian Angus tag.

Branded beef programs
There are a number of branded beef programs in Canada that are unable to find enough verified Angus cattle to satisfy their program demands. The only way to verify? With our Canadian Angus tag!

Angus-branded programs
We are moving closer and closer to where major Angus-branded programs will need and want to prove that what they are selling as Angus is, indeed, Angus! And the only way to verify minimum 50% Angus genetics is by procuring cattle that are tagged Canadian Angus.

Age verification
The Canadian Angus Association will age verify your Angus-tagged animals for you upon request.

Eligibility
Canadian Angus tags qualify animals for numerous branded Angus beef programs in Canada.

Pricing
Tags are competitively priced.

Purchasing ease
Angus tags are CCIA compliant, meet all national identification requirements and are delivered via Canada Post directly to you.

Differentiation
Canadian Angus tags visually and electronically differentiate Angus and Angus-cross cattle by guaranteeing that the animal bearing the tag has a minimum of 50% Angus genetics.

Legal Requirement
You have to tag your animals anyway, so why not tag them Angus?

Pride
Show your Angus pride! Angus is the biggest beef breed in North America with 64% of all calves processed annually containing Angus genetics.
