The NFUS, together with the Scottish Farmer, has launched a sheep tagging petition, focusing on the current double tagging rules and threat of individual recording and have asked for our help in ensuring as many sheep producers as possible sign up.
Please consider signing this petition, either electronically or by text / phone (see below for details).
The link to the e-petition is: http://www.thescottishfarmer.co.uk/sheeptaggingpetition
There is also a text message service for people to sign up. For someone to sign up, they just need to send a text from their mobile to 80011 starting the text with the word “NFUS” followed by their name and town. There is also a phoneline (0131 472 4015) where people can leave their details for the petition.
