These days many animal owners use sheep tags and ear tags for their domesticated sheep and other animals respectively. This is used in order to identify them and therefore keep a track of them

The purpose of an ear tag is for the purpose of animal identification that is usually domesticated by farm people and pet owners. It is an object made up of plastic or metal, it is used for the livestock and other animal’s identification. An electronic ear tag is the one that has a tag containing an RFID module that confirms to ISO 11784 and ISO 11785. These ISO standards confirm the quality of the product.
To keep a track and identification simpler and easier, many animal workers use these tags for various animals and especially sheep tags are used. These sheep and other animals carry an individual identification number or a specific code with the help of which their owners can track their movements.
One can manually apply certain specially-designed tags using pliers or ear tag applicator; an ear tag can be applied. An animal may be tagged on one ear or both on the basis of the tagging purpose. In case animals are being tagged for private purposes, usually one ear is tagged. Visually readable ear tags printed with a proper identification code is needed in sheep and goats in many countries. Very small ear tags and sheep tags are used in case of sheep and other animals being used for laboratory purposes. A device that pierces the ear of an animal is usually used thereby installing the tag.
