Animal Movement

Animal Movement

 Individual animal movement can be tracked by recording the change in location (i.e., from one unique premises to another unique premises) of a uniquely-identified animal at a specified time/date.

Canadian Livestock Tracking System database users are able to report six different animal movement events:

  1. Move In: Used to report the identification of an approved animal indicator applied to an animal that has been received (moved into) a defined location on a defined day
  1. Move Out: Used to report the identification of an approved animal indicator applied to an animal that has departed from (moved out of) a defined location on a defined day
  1. Sighted: Used to report the identification of an approved animal indicator applied to an animal that has been observed at a defined location on a defined day (e.g., livestock operation, veterinary clinic, etc.)
  1. Imported: Used to report the identification of an approved animal indicator applied to an animal that has entered Canada
  1. Exported: Used to report the identification of an approved tag applied to an animal that has left Canada, whether temporarily or permanently. The Exported event is now used in replace of the retired Temporary Export event.
