Selecting the correct NLIS cattle tag applicator
NLIS (Cattle) tag applicators are not always the same. There are often subtle differences between applicators in the shape of the jaws and/or the length of the pin. As a consequence, some tag brands can only be successfully applied with a limited number of tag applicators.
The table below contains information on common tag applicators and whether they can be used in conjunction with particular tag brands or not. If you have a question about whether the applicator that you currently have is suitable for a particular tag brand, call the tag supplier, not the company from which you purchased the applicator.
If you use an applicator from a different company to the supplier of your chosen NLIS (Cattle) tags and there are application or retention issues, these problems are not the responsibility of the applicator supplier. If in doubt about the suitability of your current applicator, when you next
order NLIS (Cattle) tags purchase a new applicator.
If you require information about the suitability of a tag applicator, you can if you wish also call the company from whom you have purchased your NLIS (Cattle) tags during office hours.
