"It is also understood that any animals not carrying the relevant barcoded tags after that date will not be paid for," said FUW Vice President Brian Walters.

"I believe most of the tag companies are now in a position to supply the barcoded tags, and it is essential that any farmers hoping to take full advantage of the market tag their cattle in a way that suits the requirements of their potential customers."

The FUW has also condemmed EU plans to cut compensation payments paid to farmers whose stock is compulsoraly purchased for the purposes of disease control.
