Allflex USDA Matched Pair Tags -

Matched pairs are sets of tags that include a visual tag and an electronic ID tag. What makes them "matched" is that the unique 15-digit ID number is printed on both of the tags. This helps in the event that one tag is lost from the animal's ear, there is still another form of identification. In addition, matched pairs can help make data entry into some herd management software programs easier since cattle can be referenced by their visual number or their EID number.

USDA tags are also referred to as "840" tags - the unique USDA ID number starts with 840.

Purchasing USDA tags requires a Premises ID, which can be obtained through your state's animal health department.


Color choices available for this style are:

  • BLUE
  • PINK
  • RED
