Bovine ear-tag case study

I have to admit  that  leaning to tell one cow from another has not featured highly on my list of skills, but, for farmers this is something of a requirement.  There is a need for a positive method of identifying individual cattle, and the ear tag is a well proven means of recording the animal's identity and therefore its ancestry.  What is needed is a ear tag that remains firmly affixed to said bovine under normal conditions, but also one that cannot be re-attached should it become dislodged.  The Danish Cattle Federation asked Mecmesin to help in devising some tests on ear tags to be sure that they perform both conditions satisfactorily.
