National Band & Tag’s 120th Anniversary

August 15, 2022, National Band and Tag will be celebrating our 120th Anniversary! We are so proud to have made it 120 years, an accomplishment for any company. Despite wars, depressions, recessions and most recently, a global pandemic, NB&T takes pride in continuing to provide high-quality service that stands the test of time. We dedicate our long-term success to our customers, family, and employees, both past and present.

Started in 1902 by Joseph Haas, an innovator who saw the need for a completely new industry. Haas knew little about poultry farming, but had been informed that breeders were improving their flocks and it was necessary to use some sort of marker to distinguish one fowl from another. Haas went to work designing a few patterns of bands, crude at first, but with recommendations from customers and experimental projects, he was able to come up with leg bands and wing bands that worked.

Over the decades, additional product lines such as livestock tags and rabies tags were added on. Now, 120 years later, in our 4th and 5th generation of family members, we have over ten different identification product lines. You can learn more about National Band & Tag’s interesting, and unique, history here.
