Age Verification is the association of animal birth date data with an Animal Identification Number (Single Tag or Tag Group). With the ever increasing demand for accurate age determination in Canadian cattle, the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) implemented technological advancements to the national database that provides an effective and international recognized Age Verification Process. This free of charge, voluntary program enables producers to store information and have it readily available should it be required by domestic or export markets. Producers who do not have internet access can assign a third-party user to submit information on their behalf.
