Hi folks, just wanting to make sure I have this right.

We have some ewes booked in for muttonisation soon. Two of them have lost a tag. Am I right in saying:

Home bred one - Remove remaining tag and replace with a matching pair of visual / yellow EID tags with my flock number on them. Record in book.

Bought in one - Remove remaining tag and replace with a matching pair of red replacement tags with my flock number on them. Record in book.

Am I right?  :fc:

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

For the homebred, you could simply order a replacement for the missing tag, rather than replace both with a new number and log in book.  Either is correct.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

If they only have lost one tag and the ewe is bought-in, then you can order a replacement with her exact number.




Red tags only for animals where you do nto know the number (or it is faster to just stick in a red tag, if you find them with one missing on the morning they are off...)

Thanks folks!

I have ordered replica (copy) tags before, and they were fine.

In this case I had a bought-in ewe who lost a tag just a few days before being sent to the abattoir, so a red tag made most sense anyway. Then I spotted that one of the home-bred ewes needed a tag too, and I wasn't sure if that now needed to be red or yellow.

'tis done now anyway. Thank you!
