Ear Tagging

ear taggingFemale and male calves to be registered must have approved dairy tag sets (white) placed in both ears within 24 hours of birth. If a bull calf is leaving the farm for veal, or beef, a single CCIA RFID button (yellow) from the local supply store is an acceptable alternative. This is an efficient way to identify animals for national health, tracking, on-farm management, evaluations and registration. If using a single tag, use the right ear.
