Sheep Tag is ICAR approved and ideal for identification, tracking and health, and nutrition management. Sheep Tag is specially made using TPU material and over-molded to make it more robust and durable in an outdoor environment. It is available in different animal modes including FDX as well as HDX.
Using Sheep tags has many advantages:
- It offers another form of identification for each animal. Sometimes visual tags get lost, become snagged on a fence, etc, whereas cattle tags are small and are designed for high retention rates.
- An animal can more quickly be identified in the chute (by scanning the tag with a reader) rather than needing to have the animal be completely still to read a visual tag or tattoo number.
- Scanning these tags, instead of manually writing down an ear tag number, offers tremendous time-saving benefits while minimizing errors. As cattle are being worked or loaded into a trailer, their EID tag can be scanned while they are on the move.
