Angus Tag Program

Commercial Programs — Canadian Angus Tag Program

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

Program Advantages

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