How to Use
- The male and female tags will come to you slightly connected. You will need to tear them apart.
- Place the flag of the female tag under the metal spring finger. The printed side of the female tag will be against the jaw of the applicator. Slide the male tag over the metal pin. Be sure to push it all the way onto the pin. The printed side of the male tag will be against the other jaw of the applicator.
- Make sure the tag is correctly placed. Slowly squeeze the handles together to be sure the male pin aligns with the female opening (be careful to not put the tag together yet).
- Place the ear between the jaws of the applicator. While gripping the ear, quickly and firmly squeeze the handles together until the male tag is inserted through the ear and into the female tag.
Note: We will print both sides (male and female) unless otherwise specified.
Inserting 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) and 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.

This is the third year we have used this product. We use them to identify our newborn lambs with their mother. They are small enough to work with the lambs and not injure their ears.

We use these, with no lettering, to mark ewes, a different color for each year. They work great, I don't think I've seen one break or lose color for all the time the sheep are in the sun.

We use these tags in blue to mark all our male boar goat kids. They are great to use because of their small size and it makes it easy to sort kids when it comes weaning time.

We use these tags to tag our newborn lambs with the number of their momma. They are small enough that they don't droop the ear too bad and when we sell them, we just remove them and insert the USDA tag. It makes it much easier to know which lambs we want to keep for ourselves.

Fast shipping. Large numbers on tag should make them easy to read.
