To comply with legislation set by the British Cattle Movement Service, beef calves must have a yellow plastic primary cattle ear tag fitted within 20 days post-birth to help with tracing, prevent theft and control disease outbreaks. That’s even sooner for dairy calves, who should have primary ear tags fitted within 36 hours post-birth.
We pride ourselves on working with livestock farmers to make cattle tagging as easy as it possibly can be. At Tynedale 4 Tags, we have a wide range of cattle ear tags and ear tagging accessories available to buy online for delivery, or for same day local collection in Wigton, Cumbria.
We also offer custom cattle ear tags and blank tags, and all our tags are suitable for a range of cattle: dairy, beef and special breeds.
To help make things easier, we can deliver to farms in our local area, or send via same day postal delivery when you order before 2pm (excluding weekends).
We really know cattle tagging, so we understand how important it is that your cattle tags are strong, made from high quality materials and durable enough to withstand challenging conditions. We’ve worked hard to source the best quality tags we can, with the highest retention rate. That means our cattle tags are much less likely to snap or be torn from cattle ears, reducing the number of replacement tags you’ll need.
We’re proud to say all our new run tags are DEFRA approved, and are field trialled under UK conditions with proven results. They’re also manufactured to ISO standards, PAS 44:2009.
Our cattle tags are distance readable, and carry your cattle’s key information (taken from gov.uk):
- The Crown logo
- The country code (UK)
- The herd mark
- A six digit individual animal number.
You can order Replacement tags for same day collection, you’ll find the order form and more details here. Replacement tags must be fitted within 28 days of you noticing it is lost or damaged.
