Virginia Animal ID Program

Most swine in Virginia are part of integrated commercial production systems and use identification requirements widely adopted by the pork industry. More information on these programs is available at the following sites:

For independent swine producers, official ID tags or breed registry tattoos and Certificates of Veterinary inspection are generally required for animals moving across state lines that are not going direct to slaughter. Producers should check with the state of destination for specific animal entry requirements. Official 840-series swine tags are available from online vendors and VDACS can provide official metal swine tags at no cost to producers.
