Shearwell Tag Price Increase

Written by CCWG Thursday, June 1, 2023

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!
