Electronic Tagging for Sheep

Electronic identification (EID) replaced double tagging for sheep on 31 December 2009.

Information and guidance regarding electronic tagging of sheep is available on the Gov.UK website.


Goats do not have to be electronically identified. This is because our goat population is below the EU threshold. The double tagging rules continue to apply for goats.
