Nordic Star sheep & goat tags are a simple, cost effective option for tagging your sheep and goats. They are a one piece fold over tag that is either visual tag or an EID tag available in various colours to suit any tagging needs.
Our sheep tag applicator applies both EID & Visual tags.
Tags are available as either 'Breeding Tags' or 'Slaughter Tags' - If you are unsure as to which tags you need to order, please see a brief guide below:
Sheep being kept over 12 months of age must be double tagged (Breeding Pair) with a Yellow EID & Visual tag (Visual tag must not be yellow, black or red).
Sheep going for slaughter or being sold within 12 months of age must be tagged with a single yellow EID tag (EID Slaughter Tag)
Sheep that have lost both tags and the individual number is not known should be retagged with a Red EID & Red Visual tag (Red Replacement Pair)
Sheep that have lost one tag and the individual number is known, can have a like for like Replica tag produced- Please call to discuss.
EID tagging is optional for goats
If the customer wants to use EID tags for goats, the rules for sheep as above apply.
