second princess  if the original breeder identified the pig with a tattoo it is wrong to put another identifying mark on that pig       its original identity is lost and therefore cannot correlate with the pedigree papers

when i bought her - her tattoo was clear, and there was no legal requirement for pig id.
now u can hardly see it, and as its law it looks like she has no id. maybe i should ask her breeder for an eartag? we had a sheep inspection last year where all sheep were checked for eartags, so i presume they can do that for pigs now too?

not heard of any inspections in pigs     as i said if it is pedigree it has to be tattooed for breeding and showing
if breeding only it has to be double tagged         (this is an ongoing problem that the bpa have )
with faded tattoos if you shine a torch close to the back of the ear it should show      or clean the ear and it may still be visible :farmer:
