Tag Evaluation

Producers play an important role in helping assess the performance of official CSIP tags. CSF encourages producers to give feedback on tag performance over time and in farm situations. This feedback will assist in identifying issues that the CSF may need to examine with manufacturers. By providing the CSF with feedback on tags, producers will help ensure that the industry is being provided with the best tags possible.
