Goutimus Maximus: Cattle Ear Tagging Response

awfulmodifications:

1. I won’t go preaching the animal debate, but for those who say they’re just going to be steak so it doesn’t matter if you tag them, that’s a cheap shot ignoring the bigger problem.

And 2. To those who say piercing guns hardly hurt people, I ended up in the hospital…

The materials used definitely aren’t sharper for ear tags, it’s just a plastic point they shove through using something like a piercing gun. Saw it done on my goats, it’s a legal requirement or I’d never have allowed it.

    I have so many problems with this. And I do live on a farm. You know why tagging is important? Cows need to be traced....
