How to Write Cattle Ear Tags
Prepare your work station.Layer a table with at least three sheets of newspaper, equip it with a few paper towels for blotting the pen on, and gather the marker and blank tags.
- You will need a marker specifically for cattle tags or the dye will wear off.
Study other cow tags to see how the numbers are written.To have each cow's number fit on its tag, number will need to be written tall and narrow. Note how each number is uniform in height and also width.
Wet the marker.Do this by shaking it vigorously and then pressing the end of it hard into the paper towels. This will let down the ink into the tip of it.
- This procedure is also helpful for when the tip starts to dry up.
Write the tags.Mentally envision the number layout before you start, remembering that each number should be as large as possible while retaining great readability.
- Remember to write a duplicate tag number for calves, if necessary.
- Write a few tag numbers beyond what you'll need. These will come in handy for next time you need tags (this way you'll know what number at which to start).
Allow the tags time to dry (20 minutes or so), and then go over each number with the marker a second time.This will help the ink to last longer and also make the numbers more readable from a distance. # Tag your cattle and improve your profits through good record-keeping!

- Don't drop the marker! It's dye holds incredibly fast and is great at staining things.
- Be sure to check what numbers you're writing and make sure you haven't gone back and are rewriting numbers you already wrote.
