Identification for Livestock and Pets

Product identification and traceability are critical in farm management

Being able to identify individual animals is critical to good farm management. One of the most common methods of identifying livestock is to apply an ear tag. Tagging allows for quick visual or electronic identification of each animal.  Specific tags are required for each kind of livestock with certain information required by state and national government regulations.

Keeping track of the family pet can be just as important. Most pet owners place a pet tag with information about the name and contact information of the owner should that pet ever go missing. Medical information such as rabies vaccination numbers or veterinarian location is also engraved on pet tags.
