 Tag Placement

Of course we see a lot of tags at the Stratton Sales Barn.  We would like to point out how important it is for correct tag placement.  This not only helps with tag retention but also for tag reading when the cattle go through the scanners.  Please keep this diagram in mind when your are tagging!
