On many dairy farms, it is standard practice to identify cows by means of numbers placed on their collars However, numbers on cows' collars frequently become soiled, damaged or even lost. Tightening or replacing individual numbers can be very time-consuming.
Tricas has developed, in cooperation with Akroh Industries, the Clip-On identification numbers.
With these products, collars can remain on cows if numbers need to be changed or supplemented. Numbers to be replaced can be removed with combination pliers, and new numbers are simply clipped on.
This results in considerably less stress for animals, as it may not even be necessary to restrain cows to ensure they keep their heads sufficiently still. Benefits for users include reduced effort and time as well as the additional option of easily including colour codes in visual identification.
