Equipment Profile: Ear Tags
An ear tag usually carries an Animal Identification Number or code for the animal, or for its herd or flock. Non electronic ear tags may be simply handwritten for the convenience of the farmer. An ear tag can be applied with an ear tag applicator; however there are also specially-designed tags that can be applied by hand. Depending on the purpose of the tagging and animal may be tagged on one ear or both.
