Welcome to the Caisley website, to suit your livestock identification needs we offer a wide range of cattle, sheep and pig tags. To make tagging easier, we have one applicator which will apply the full range of our tags, including tissue sampling EID and Visual. Our replacement tags are despatched on a 24hr service to reach you the next day.
Caisley livestock tags have been available in the UK for over 25 years. We are delighted to inform you that they are now available direct from Caisley and leading agricultural merchants. The current FLEXOPLUS® and FLEXOTRONIC® generation of tags are immediately recognisable by the red cap and locking ring on the female part of the tag.
Caisley tags are used by farmers in over 70 countries around the world. Our programme of continuous development is focused on making tagging as easy as possible for farmers who have to deal with increasing legislative demands, to comply with animal identification and traceability.
A number of the key features of Caisley tags:
Outstanding tag retention
The FLEXO range (visual, EID, and tissue sampling) have a retention rate of over 99%* in a wide range of husbandry environments. This is due to the design of the male and female locking mechanism that ensures free and frictionless rotation of both parts of the tag, throughout the lifetime of the animal.
Easy to read numbers – To make the numbers easy to read we use a unique print font which clearly distinguishes the frequently confused numbers 1 and 7, 3 and 8, 5 and 6. Combined with the dark laser print that is cut deep into the surface of the tag, the numbers can be read even in poor light conditions.
One applicator for all tags
Only one applicator is required to insert all types of tag, including the FLEXOPLUS®Geno tissue sampling and FLEXOTRONIC® EID tags. The Universal Applicator has a patented parallel closing mechanism, which inserts the tag with minimum effort and damage to ear tissue.
To speed up tagging and to avoid mixing up tags, they are printed and packed in pairs (a strip of two tags for one animal). The pair combinations (combos) available for both official and management use are almost limitless. They include visual with EID and visual with tissue sampling combos.
Tamper proof tissue sampling
Our patented FLEXOPLUS®GENO tissue sampling tag is endorsed by the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) and their Premium Cattle Health Scheme (PCHS). It is the only tag system on the market that takes the sample and safely secures it in the sample tube, all in the same action when inserting the tag. This eliminates any risk of samples from different animals being mixed up or sample contamination resulting in an incorrect test result. For easy identification of our tissue sampling tags and animals that have had a tissue sample tag inserted, the FLEXOPLUS®GENO range have a green cap and locking ring.
