CLTS Changes

Attention CLTS Users,

The Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS) is in the process of moving from a 9-digit to a 15-digit data entry system.

On December 18, 2020 Phase 2 of the rollout will begin.

The 15-digit data entry tag ID input will now be mandatory when using File Upload Method

Phase 3: Effective April 2, 2021, 15-digit data entry tag ID input will be mandatory when using web services

While using the CLTS is changing to a 15-digit data entry system, your tags will not be changing. Tags already contain a 15-digit number and they will remain this way. The change is only required when entering NEW tag numbers into the database.
