The mandatory use of electronic tags came into effect on January 1 this year, with lambs and kids born on or after this date requiring a tag before they leave the property of birth.

Ms Pulford tagged Poll Dorset lambs on James Molesworth’s property, who runs a large commercial and stud operation, and is new to electronic tagging.

“It’s great to see farmers like James getting on board with the roll out, and taking advantage of the benefits of electronic ID,” Ms Pulford said.

“Electronic ID will help protect Victoria’s sheep and goat industries, and our access to important export markets.

“This is game-changing technology, and Victorian farmers are proudly leading the way.”
