Shearwell SET tags for sheep identification are light, durable and easy to apply one-piece ear tags. The popularity of these tags is unparalleled, with more than 80 million sold in the past five years alone.
Visual and electronic tags are identical, with an RFID chip fitting securely into a chamber of the electronic tag. The inner surfaces of the tag are smooth and rounded to avoid pinch points and reduce the risk of infection, and both RFID and visual tags are laser-etched for easy reading throughout the life of the animal.
Visual and electronic tags are easy to apply using the same Shearwell applicator. View instructions
