Shearwell Tag Price Increase
Shearwell Data Livestock Systems has been a strong industry
partner within the Canadian sheep industry. The company has
worked hard to delay inevitable fee increases as long as they could
and that is appreciated. In fact, it has been 14 years since
Shearwell has been supplying the tags for the CSIP program and this
is the first ever price increase to Canadian producers. The
time has come however, that the price has to go up!
Accordingly, the Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers will be
increasing the fee charged on CSIP tags as of July 1, 2023 at all
retail locations. The single CSIP tags will retail 25 cents
higher per tag while the combo tags (purebred pair tags) will
increase by 30 cents/pair.
The pricing increase is entirely represented by the
corresponding increases in tag costs, freight rates and domestic
logistic costs thus ensuring that the CSIP tags are offered to
producers across Canada at the leanest pricing...
