Ear Tags

  • RFID tags and custom eartags can be ordered through the AGA. (see pricing below) Custom eartags can be ordered automatically with each batch of registrations, or less frequently by calling or emailing the office with the registration numbers of the animals you want eartags for. The following information is needed to order tags: Premise ID number, Eartag size, Eartag color, Eartag print size, Custom Info (Sire, Dam, DOB, Name, etc.). Each animal must also be registered with a herd management number (eartag number).

  • Premise ID numbers can be obtained through your state and are required for ordering RFID tags.

  • RFID tags are required for attendance at the National Guernsey Shows in Madison and Harrisburg (FAIR tags are permissible for older cattle, but all animals tagged after March 1, 2015 must use RFID tags). They are also being required by many smaller state and even county shows across the country. RFID tags are also being required for selling animals out of state in many places. To register a calf with an RFID number, she must have a secondary form of ID, including a custom ID tag (official only, NOT a written on blank tag), tattoo, sketch or photo. An animal may be registered with multiple forms of ID.

  • RFID tags do not have to be ordered through the AGA to be used on a Guernsey, but many breeders find it simpler to do so than to work with another organization. If you would like to start ordering tags, please contact the office at 614.339.5390 or ralden@usguernsey.com.
