The Canadian Pork Council plans to focus on Canada's swine breeding herds as it moves to make national-level traceability ear tags available for hog producers' use.

The council's program will offer three types of tags, two being the rectangular-shaped tag and trapezoid-shaped tag, both of which will have the animal's unique traceability number and space for a barn management number to be custom-printed on the yellow "male" portion. On the "female" portion of those two tags can be a button or a secondary panel in one of six different colours.

The third option is a yellow RFID (radio frequency identification) button.
