Cow Identification Pays
How many times have you seen a cow in heat but you were not quite sure who she was?

Mis-identifying, or not identifying animals clearly is one of the costliest mistakes a dairy can make. It is the foundation of your breeding program, your treatment program and the basis for any good records program. Fortunately,  good identification of the herd is not a difficult management practice to implement and maintain.

Dairy One is your source for cow identification tags. Single or double tagging each animal for life, preferably with a tag that coincides with the last 3 or 4 digits of the USDA tag, is a system that has proven reliable for many dairies. For example, a heifer is born, she is given an eartag of 21WXY0500 and tagged #500. This is her number for life. It is a system that is simple, clean and it works.

There are plenty of reasons to miss catching heats – let’s eliminate one of them.

Drop shipped to your dairy
Fearing and Z-tags can both be drop-shipped to your dairy. Just ask your Dairy One technician to place an order for you, or e-mail: supply@dairyone.com (phone: 1.800.344.2697, ext. 7). Please provide your account number (herdcode), name, phone number and shipping address when ordering.
