I'm going to an animal industry board meeting this afternoon regarding mandatory animal identification in livestock and was wondering if anyone has any info on this being challenged by the Amish whos beliefs are against the mandatory tagging of livestock? I'm representing the SD elk breeders. Does ohio require preserve deer to be tagged. Thanks for any info that I could be informed with going into this meeting. I know most cattle guys are against anything mandatory. Thanks for any info

I'm not a preserve owner but yeah. Pretty sure they do. I know the state tag has to be in. It is the only way to track the deer. How would one know what deer was taken. Only one way a deer can come off of a preserve

The reason I ask is I know of one operation who highlights "no tags" in the advertising? I know most states or maybe all require 2 forms of ID. Maybe they use TB tags instead of the plastic tags??

Thanks

We have the metal tags in. You do not have to have plasic tags, but there has to be some sort of id. I know who your referring to but there has to be some kind of id unless its a natural addition.

Micro Chips are the way to go. They are an approved form of ID

How do you tag everything that is born in the preserve?

Preserves are usually dead end places for our animals.* Here in Montana when we had 1000 to 2500 acre hunting facilities with natural habitat this started out ok as they only wanted tagged animals in there.* But then it got real stupid and they wanted a Vet to certify all the animals were there with a full herd inventory yearly.* That was basically something that would not happen 100% of the animals herded up, get real.* States got to get real and be reasonable about a facility that end up harvesting those animals.* Our harvest facilities are nothing more than humane slaughter facilities.* Check the animals when they leave the facility period.

I agree, microchips are the way to go. We are required to have 2 forms of ID on EVERY animal, one of which is a numbered ear tag or button EVEN in a preserve. This was a rule that was designed by our Game Fish & Parks 15 years ago when the first CWD animals were popping up in our state in some private elk herds.*They were*pushing these rules to our Animal Industry Board to try and discourage*private deer and elk farming all together.*It worked, allot quit. Some time ago someone told me that the mandatory tags was challenged by some Amish because of religious beliefs in Ohio I believe and that's why they don't need to have tags??? Is this true or not?*I obviously know they do to cross state lines and be able to be traced when moved. I was just wondering about just how other states are with the ID's on preserves.


Thanks for any info

Ohio we have to have 2 tags amish or not. You can use a microchip but there has to be atleast 1 tag metal or plastic in the ear if they a not natural additions.

That's correct, one has to be visible from a certain distance.

As far as against the Amish religion, more like they don't want the additional vet bills. I'm pretty sure God wouldn't mind if your deer are tagged.
