How-to: Insert Ear Tags in Cold Weather
Plastic tags (all brands) are much easier to install if they are warm. Why? As the temperature drops below freezing, plastic becomes less flexible (more stiff). Forcing the male point of a tag through the female takes many more lbs. of pressure (because the female must expand).
So if you care about your hands it’s a good idea to keep the tags above freezing in very cold weather. It takes very little to do this. One method is to simply store them while tagging in a small bucket, cardboard box or tool box with a lid alongside a sealed pop bottle full of warm water. The warm water will keep both the air and the tags warmer in the container.

Works great! This applicator was recommended to buy to use with the tags I ordered and it does not disappoint. Nice made and it will likely last for years.

I've been using this applicator since 2014. To be honest, I'm not a fan. Its incredibly difficult to get it to punch through. I have to use both hands and squeeze as hard as I can... I think its traumatic for the lambs, takes much too long.

Once the tag is applied, the metal piece doesn’t release the top tag. It’s easy to use but should release top tag once inserted to make application easier.

Easy to use. Works great. Tags easily come off the male post.

Bren helped me get this shipment together in a cost-effective and timely manner. She is a very effective customer service oriented asset to Premier 1 and I will definitely ask for her in the future. :-D !
