How to Generate a Custom Numbered Tag List in CattleMax

Preparing to add Electronic ID tags to your cattle? Make the process easier with Matched Pair tags. 

With matched pair tags, the 15-digit EID number is also printed on the visual tag (in addition to the management number). For example, the cow's visual tag of 123 can be printed on a visual tag, and her EID number can be printed right above her tag number. This helps provide a second form of ID. In addition, you can link visual IDs and EID records together just by going through a few steps in CattleMax. This way, your time at the chute can be on getting the tags in their ears, and not needing to worry about writing down which EID number goes with each cow!

Already have a list of tag numbers you want printed on the visual tags? Use the Export List of Tags process in CattleMax to generate a file of the tag numbers. Email us the file and we'll include it with your order.
