Return addresses for bulls
May 15, 2012
Bulls are notorious for going places they aren’t authorized to go, so it’s always handy to have them identifiable for other folks who see them. A brand is one form of identification, of course, but not all brands are easily read, or the person seeing the bull isn’t able to read it.
Generally, a bull will look at a person, so, an ear tag is another option for identification.
We put a cow-sized ear tag with our last name and home phone number clearly printed on it in the bull’s ear so whoever sees him can call us and let us know. If the ear tag fades, it’s simple to replace it when the bull is in the chute being tested in the spring.
