Dallas, Texas (12-16-2010) – Allflex USA is introducing a one-piece, self-piercing tag called the A-Tag™. The new A-Tag comes in three convenient sizes for beef and dairy operations – calf, cow and feedlot.
“A-Tag is a highly versatile tag that can be used for long-term identification and is cost effective for short-term needs,” said Glenn Fischer, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing. “Producers looking for a one-piece option can source all their identification needs with Allflex and be backed by superior service and field support.”
The A-Tag features the quality materials and construction livestock producers have come to expect from Allflex. The tag comes with a self-piercing, pinhole tip designed for reduced animal stress and faster healing. A longer tag anchor means higher retention in thick-eared animals. Tag application is quick and easy with the yellow Allflex A-Tag Applicator featuring a flip-pin design.
Cow and calf A-Tag sizes, available in nine colors, are packaged blank in bags of 25 and 100. Numbered tags are available in bags of 25 tags. Feedlot A-Tags, available in 20 colors, are packaged in bags of 50. Custom marking and numbering for all sizes using Allflex’s patented laser-ink permanent marking is available by special order.
The new A-Tag is available through traditional animal health distribution. For more information, contact your local distributor representative or call Allflex, the one source for livestock identification, at 1-800-989-8247.
