What special precautions are there?

  • When using on young calves and other animals with soft ears, use your free hand to grasp the tip of the ear, hold onto the ear for added support, and ensure that the tip of the tag completely penetrates the ear.
  • Use caution in handling the tag. It has a sharp point.
  • Traditional 2-piece ear tags can weaken and damage the tissue of the ear. Applying a Z tag to pre-existing holes can cause the tag to become lost. Never use in a pre-existing ear tag hole.
  • Keep out of reach of children.

How can I store Z Tag Applicator?

Store in a dry and cool environment.


Flip applicator pin up to tag loading position. Insert pin into tag. Straighten self piercing tip and push down onto pin. Make sure tag is fully seated on the pin before tagging. Rotate tag to the side. Flip the applicator pin down into tagging position. Tag through the front of the ear only. To apply tag, squeeze handles firmly together and hold closed. To remove applicator, pull the Z Tags applicator straight down and away from the ear on one single motion. Do not release the applicator handles at any point during step. When the Z Tags applicator is pulled away from the ear, the pin automatically flips up to eliminate ripped ears and damage to the pin.
