These tags stay tagged, says maker

TIRED of ear tag losses? Denimexs Zee tags may provide the solution youve been searching for, says the manufacturer.

Of 200 cattle trialled with the tags, none lost their tags over a six-month trial period. Tags include a surgical cutting tip moulded from two types of plastic. One is said to be soft and flexible, providing the necessary give, should it catch on anything.

The double rotating tag design gives twice the opportunity for the tag to swing free from entanglement, says the company.

Primary tags cost 99p each and secondary tags 69p each when purchased alongside primary tags (01622-850057, fax 01622-850097).
