EID Tagging

We are going to be sending 61 of our yearlings to the Circle 5 feedlot in Nebraska next week.
There usually is a premium for source and age verified cattle. In order qualify for this premium we have to tag the cattle with special electronic ear tags. J and the girls worked on this today while I was at my work. J did the tagging.
V worked the head gate and E took pictures and kept up with the paperwork.
Papa R even helped out. I don't think he came by to work but he volunteered anyway. They got 32 head tagged. The others are at a different farm and will probably get tagged right before they get hauled out.

We do the age verification thing here as well , though I don't care for the CCIA tags they are a button style and I find if you don't get it just right they will loose them
