A United Front is needed on EID

Thursday, October 11, 2012

The Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) has renewed its call to sort out the impracticability and injustice of individual electronic identification of sheep (EID).

Returning from Brussels where he was taking part in a series of meetings discussing EID, Norman Leask, Parliamentary Spokesman for SCF, said “EID was a hot topic at the Sheep and Goat Meat Advisory Group I was attending. It was the main topic again at the German Shepherds’ meeting, who are taking the European Commission to the court of human rights in Strasbourg, over EID. This is not something that will just go away”.
