Sheep tag subsidy to continue

THE Victorian Government says it will continue to subsidise electronic sheep tags, ensuring they remain the cheapest in the country.

Minister for Agriculture Jaala Pulford announced ongoing support for the cheapest electronic sheep tags to be available from 45 cents for 2018.

All sheep and goats born in Victoria since January 1 this year require an electronic tag.

Ten million have been sold so far this year, the vast majority at a cost neutral price starting from 35 cents.
