All-American Dairy Show, Keystone International Livestock Expo, PA Farm Show to Require 840-Standard RFID Tags on Cattle, Swine

This new rule brings PA-sponsored shows in line with federal traceability standards. All cattle and swine must have an 840 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID/EID) tag that corresponds to the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection to meet the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal Disease Traceability Identification requirements for interstate movement of cattle and swine.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture today reminded anyone bringing cattle or swine to this year’s three state-sponsored livestock shows that their animals must be identified with radio frequency or electronic identification (RFID/EID) tags that meet recently-tightened federal traceability standards. For more information on each show, contact the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex at 717-787-2905 or visit farm show website, All American Dairy Show website, or Keystone International show website. Tag information is available on the premium list page of each website.
