Livestock Identification - Tags

Click to Start/Stop



As part of the Allflex Group of companies Cox & Ritchey can supply a comprehensive range of DEFRA approved livestock Identification products to meet the growing needs of the modern farm or smallholding - Through our extensive network of Trade Partners.

The humble ear tag has evolved greatly since its inception and can now be utilised as a powerful tool in the collection, monitoring and archiving of animal data. Providing invaluable intelligence on key livestock management parameters, such as performance, welfare and genetic progress.

In-ear technology can play a key role in improving livestock performance and profitability, especially when allied with integrated handling, weighing and monitoring systems. Dairy farmers routinely use information provided by milking parlour software, such as milk yield and somatic cell counts, to make informed management decisions for breeding or marketing. In the sheep and beef sectors the use of EiD (Electronic Identification) tags linked to farm management software can offer the same opportunity to focus on those factors most likely to influence profitability such as daily liveweight gain and finishing weights.
