Custom and Official Livestock Ear Tags
Custom Tags – Our most popular metal ear tag is the style #49. Metal ear tags are one-piece and self-piercing. Another identification option for your cattle is plastic ear tags. These tags are two-pieces, a female and male part. NB&T produces Flex-Lok ear tags, and is a distributor of plastic tags for AllFlex, Destron Fearing, and Perma-Flex. Metal ear tags for cattle are more economical compared to plastic ear tags. But plastic ear tags provide a highly visible number and has more color options.
NUES/ Brucellosis Tags – Can only be ordered by an accredited veterinarian. NUES tags are silver, and brucellosis ear tags are orange.
