Retention Matters

If you would like to see and learn more about the tags and applicators used in the CCIA traceability and identification program, including application advice, please visit our “Retention Matters” website. 

“Retention Matters” is an industry resource which provides learning tools and information on how to achieve best retention with the RFID tags producers use with their animals.

The CCIA reviews and updates these resources regularly to ensure only the most up-to-date information is given.
