Lost tags on a few sheep need to replace, one or two have ripped the old ones out somehow leaving large tares where do I put the tag in that ear

Between two other ribs.  (And not until you have to, or you will run out of ear!)  (I did not say that.  :innocent:)
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Ive not lost any of the qwick tags at all, they all have held well, this year I will put one in the top of the ear on one side and on the lower part of the ear on the other side, just as I am sure helps a double loss of tag
