This page lists a number of the current tags approved for the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) which is the system originally started in response to the first Mad Cow or BSE case discovery here in the United States at the end of 2003. (Scroll about halfway down page to view tags.)

Sagebrush Tags / RFIDtagstcc.com is an authorized tag manager/reseller for the '840' series tags from Allflex, Y-TEX, Hasco, Temple Tag and Destron Fearing which are approved for use with the USDA/NAIS National Animal Identification program. These tags bear the USDA approved logo and manufacturer's name along with the 15-digit identification number. They can also be used with other certification programs. These devices are not to be removed from the animal once they have been applied.

In order to purchase the 840 tags you MUST have a premise ID number registered through your state Dept. of Agriculture or tribe. Orders for the 840 tags will be shipped to the address of the premise registration unless special arrangements are made. There will be a 'Special Instructions" box on the order form for you to enter your premise ID number.


On December 20, 2012 the USDA announced the final ruling for improving the traceability of interstate movement of livestock in the U.S.
The new final rule is flexible and effective for animal disease traceability for livestock moving interstate without putting undue burdens on ranchers and U.S. livestock businesses.
The final rule allows some exemptions but for the most part livestock moved interstate would have to be officially identified and would need to be accompanied by documentation such as an interstate certificate of veterinary inspection, owner-shipper statements or brand certificates.
There are several differences in the final rule compared to the August 2011 proposed rule.

The new rule includes the following:
  • Acceptance of the use of brands, brand registration and tattoos for official identification so long as the shipping and receiving States or Tribes accept them.
  • The use of backtags is an acceptable alternative to official eartags for bison and cattle moved directly to slaughter.
  • Alternative movement documentation may be used for all classes and ages of cattle in lieu of an Interstate Certificate of Veterinary Inspection when accepted by the shipping and receiving States or Tribes.
  • All livestock that is moved to a custom slaughter facility via interstate transport are exempt from the regulations.
  • Chicks moved from a hatchery via interstate transport are also exempt from the official identification requirements.
Specific traceability requirements for beef cattle under 18 months of age, which are not being moved interstate for exhibitions, rodeos, shows or recreational events will be addressed in a separate rulemaking and are also exempt from this official rule.
Animal disease traceability is very important to ensure a rapid response when animal disease events take place to allow for knowledge of where diseased and at-risk animals are as well as where they have been and when.
Having an efficient and accurate animal traceability system in place allows for reduction in number of animals involved in an investigation, decreases the cost to producers and the government and reduces the time needed to respond.


There are now a variety of devices which have been approved for the NAIS including RFID button tags; matched sets which include an RFID button tag and a visual tag set with matching 15-digit nubmers; All in one tags or combo e tags which combine the RFID device with a panel tag; or USDA 840 visual tags which are panel tags with a 15-digit number printed on them.
These tags will also meet COOL requirements.

If you wish to use these devices to help with marketing your animals then you may want to enroll with a third party verifier or PVP program such as Certified Angus Beef, AgInfoLink or South Dakota Certified Beef.

Approved devices for horses (equine), alpaca/llama are a microchip transponder such as the Destron LIFECHIP which is inserted under the skin of the animal - usually in the neck on horses or at the base of the poll on llama/alpaca.
