Brass Lamb Tags
Very low cost, low profile tag. The animal must be caught to read it once it is installed. It will stay in ear for years if inserted correctly.
Numbered consecutively, one side only.

These are really small. The box said for bird wings. Called customer service they said it was right, even though it said for bird wings.

Look good but won’t use until next season. Have been using Tambra tags which are lighter and cheaper, would like to see Premier carry those.

These tags are ideal for newborn lamb identification. I have been using these tags for almost 10 years.
I typically tag Ewes in the R ear and Bucks in the L ear to make sorting by sex easier. I apply the tag on the back side of the ear based on better long term retention.
Be sure to leave a gap about 1/3 the length of the tag to allow for ear growth. I also use these tags in mature animals as a backup tag to aid in identification when tags get lost.

All our ewes receive two tags, brass and plastic. It helps to have a backup tag in case one is lost. These look slightly different from the brass tags I have used in the past, so will see how well they work. It doesn’t seem to matter what type of tag is used the sheep always manage to lose them. With two different tags, it has helped us keep the identities of our sheep straight.

Great for ID in newborn lambs. By ear placement can code for male/female and single lamb or multiple lambs.
