Animal Identification and Related Supplies

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 ear tag 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.
