A key element of Ceres Tag’s design is the retention system to hold the tag on the ear. The system used has been tested in both simulated and real trials with a record-breaking strength of up to 297 kg, which is approximately five times greater than comparative single pin plastic tags.
Ceres Tag’s independently designed and tested retention system has been designed with animal welfare at front of mind. This a result of the unique locking system that allows for natural movement and airflow to the ear and subsequently reduces irritation. This feature means there is no rubbing either on the front or back of the ear ensuring less scratching on trees or fences – another factor that impacts retention.
