Sunday Stills "Green"

 Two week ago we Bangs vaccinated our one thirty-six heifer calves. Each calf carries a metal tag in her ear with a with a prefix indicating the year and a number unique to the animal. They also have a tatoo in the same ear with the with the information. The tatoo is applied by inking the tatoo tool which then is squeezed on her ear. This leaves not only the tatoo but a trace of the ink.
