Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LEtHBRIDGE HERALD Timday, October 29, 1974 Vet promotes lifetime tag A lifetime guaranteed system of identifying cattle with ta.gs is being promoted by a Calgary veterinarian. W. J. Tarver, veterinarian for the Canada department of agriculture health of animals branch, holds the world patent rights on the new tag which he predicts will bring an end to the costly method of poking identification tags through cattle's ears. Traditional ear tags are applied in an animal's ear with a sharp pointed instrument. The tag enters "Whin GOOD SERVICE IS AUTOMATIC" AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION "LTD. Phone 327-0910 1520 3rd AVI.

With the new system, Dr. Tarver said tags can't fall or be knocked out because they are applied directly to the skull of the animal. A demonstration is being planned for a Southern Alberta ranch to allow federal animal researchers to view the system. He explained that the back of a cow's head is an empty sinus cavity covered by bone, meat and skin_ about the thickness of .man's 'fingers. The sinus cavity is between the outer bone layer and a bone layer surrounding the brain. The applicator for the new method is a captive bolt pistol which utilizes 22 DAVIS ENTERPRISES (ALBERTA) We Pay the Highest PriCM for METAL-CAST ALBERTA STEEL PRODUCTS Division el Davis InduMriM Ltd.

This hollow tube is exploded from the gun, making a hole in the skull of the animal about three eights of an inch in diameter. The special tag is then poked through the hole into the sinus cavity. Developed by Dr. Tarver while he operated his own veterinary practice in Lan- cashire, England, the polystyrine tags have been applied to about 100 cows, all owned by the inventor. The actual tag is about five inches long. The largest part is the oval- shaped surface on which numbers and other marks for identification can be wntten. This is the only part which can be seen protruding from the top of the animal's head. Just below the oval shaped surface is a pair of barbs pointing away from the top to keep the tag from being pushed too far inside the animal's head. Similar barbs are located on the very bottom of the tag, pointing upwards. These barbs keep the tag from being pulled out.
