Attention Sheep and Lamb Producers:
Please be aware that all sheep and lambs ARE TO BE TAGGED before they leave the farm. Should they arrive without tags, and the Inspectors discover this, you are putting YOURSELF at risk of a $1300.00 fine, as well as $1300.00 for the trucker, and another $1300.00 fine for the Stockyards. OSI is NOT a tagging station for sheep and lambs. They are NOT to leave home without a tag!!
