Cattle ear tag
« on: January 08, 2024, 10:03:37 am »
Hi there. I am hoping someone can help me. I live on site of an old dairy farm and have found a cattle ear tag. Iím not sure if itís from the old farm if just a modern day one thatís fell out of a straw bale from the the horses. Iíve looked online and it says tags should have a six digits animal code but this one only has 5 digit which makes me wonder if itís an old one. Photo attached.  It reads: uk (crown symbol) k5632 o1381
Any ideas much appreciated! Thank you

It's a UK tag, and the format is pre-2000.
