New Calves! 

Both visual tags and the electronic identification tags (EID), the little yellow ‘buttons’ that you see in their ear that is the size of a quarter are used. Steers are tagged in the right (your left as you look at them head on) and the heifers in the left (your right as you look at them head on). The calf lying down without a tag was a few hours old. Staff check calving pastures twice per day but generally only tag once per day.
