As of the 1st of November 2015 the TAG project has come to an end. However, the website will remain live and access to the Central Database to view lamb slaughter data and flock data is still available via the Central Database page.


The TAG (Technology, Agriculture and Greater Efficiencies) project has been running since July 2009. The original aim of the project was to work with 80 sheep producers by introducing new technologies on farm, and evaluating the cost of such technologies and their effect on farm enterprise efficiency. The project has also developed the use of electronic record keeping throughout the food chain and has and will continue to develop the links between the industry and relevant government policy. The original project aims are still applicable under the current delivery objectives.

Since July 2014 the project has secured additional funding to deliver on 4 workstreams within the extended period up to June 2015. The work streams are directly related to the future resiliance of the sheep industry in Wales. The headings of these work streams are:

  • Ewe Nutrition
  • Sheep Genomics
  • Control of the dog tapeworm larvae C.Ovis
  • Ease of data collection
