DEFRA Approved Sheep Tag Supplier

Tynedale 4 Tags, part of Tynedale Farm Services, is proud to be a DEFRA approved sheep ear tag supplier.

We offer electronic ID (EID) and non-EID sheep ear tags, all designed with durability and retention in mind. Choose from a range of sheep tag colours, and order from us online for fast delivery. We also offer a range of sheep ear tagging accessories, including an EID reader.

To comply with sheep EID tagging rules, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) states that sheep must carry ear tags within 6 months if they’re housed overnight, or within 9 months of birth if they’re not housed overnight. This does not apply to any lambs that you’ve identified for slaughter within 12 months.
