After deciding to change my ear tagging system, I tagged all my adult sheep with a secondary, big tag (Premier’s Easy Tag Size 5). I really like them! They are much easier to see from a distance than the Easy Tag Size 2’s, which are the other ones my sheep are currently wearing.

And I’m loving being able to read them from the front or the back (as so often, the sheep are avoiding me and moving away from me, instead of gazing into my face with their ears perked forward…). The pictures illustrate perfectly how in real life, I have to squint a bit to read the smaller size 2 tags, but the big tags are really easy to discern. What a different a half inch makes!
