Cattle ID Tags

Countryside Services FLEXO cattle ID tags are increasingly popular throughout Northern Ireland. The FLEXO tissue sample tag is rapidly becoming tag of choice in the current BVD eradication scheme.

Cow ear tags are available as DARD approved visual new runs, electronic tags and tissue sampling tags. We offer a wide combination of both primary, secondary and management cattle ID tags to suit each individual herd requirements.

The unique design of the male and female locking mechanism of our cattle ear tags ensures free and frictionless rotation which results in less snagging. The laser marking on the FLEXO range of cattle ID tags will not deteriorate due to the exceptional quality of the plastic. Combine all this with superior elasticity and high tensile strength of the tag and you have a cattle ID tag that has a proven retention rate of 99%*.

The Electronic Identification range of Cattle EID Tags come with all the FLEXO first class qualities along with a lifetime read.
The universal tag applicator has a distinctive straight line action and is suitable for the whole FLEXO cow range including BVD and DNA test tags.

*A commercial trial of 100,000 animals by Identitas determined our cattle ID tags had over 99% retention rate in the field over a given period of time.


“It’s a no-brainer using the Caisley FLEXO range for Tag & Testing calves, the whole process is so simple. When you hear the click, you know the sample is there, safely held in the tagger -even if you drop the pliers it’s fine as the sample vial is already sealed”. Sam Chesney Ards Peninsula, Kircubbin.
