The Irish Cattle and Sheepfarmers Association is demanding the introduction of mandatory micro-chipping for dogs.
The call comes amid controversy surrounding a Co Monaghan farmer who shot a dog that was attacking his sheep earlier this week.
The farmer subsequently hung the dog's remains from a fencepost along with a sign asking if anyone could identify its owner.
