For the first time in 30 years, the counting of reindeer began in Transbaikalia

In the Kalarsky district of the Trans-Baikal Territory, reindeer 16 reindeer husbandry chipping began. For this, the ear is pierced with a special electronic clip, which contains the identification code of the animal, its age and sex characteristics and the name of the owner. Adult animals are subject to chipping, and calves are left at the end of the event. Before the procedure, deer must be vaccinated against anthrax and parasites.

By the end of autumn, specialists should cover all the largest farms in the region, where the herd population is about 3,5 thousand deer. The program for counting the number of reindeer herds is carried out in the Kalarsky district with the joint efforts of the Baikal Mountain Company, the regional government and the local administration. “One of the priority tasks of the state is to prevent this craft from fading away, to assist in maintaining the livestock and its subsequent development. For these purposes, chipping is carried out - electronic identification of domestic reindeer. As soon as the initial data on the number and structure of the herd are processed, we, together with the Baikal mining company, will begin to develop support measures, ”said project coordinator Ekaterina Sinkevich.

The deer chipping program is also being implemented as part of a federal law requiring the use of electronic identification methods for all cattle in the country by 1 on January 2021.
