Update on options for electronic identification?
« on: October 26, 2009, 01:44:21 pm »
I see there was a message thread back in February re options for electonically tagging sheep. Time is running out as 2010 lambs that will be kept for longer than 12 months will need these and the ram is now with my Llanwenog ewes!

Has anyone got any more information on options and costs? Has any one looked at how easy the different tags are to attach to sheep?

Any thoughts or advice would be most appreciated
