Use the proper pins with your Allflex tagger

  • The proper pin is key when fastening the tags together, as the red and green pins are slightly different in diameter, impacting plier withdrawal during tag installation
  • Please remember – Green pin is a GO for Ultraflex tags

Positioning the identifiers:

  • The identifiers with black buttons (female part) must be positioned in front of the ear, where they are protected by the curvature of the ear
  • Place the identifier between the two principal veins in the ear, in the first third of the ear next to the head
  • For maximum retention, it is better to use a new hole when re-identifying an animal
