Teachers,

The Department of Agriculture is no longer passing out the 840 EID tags to
teachers, agents or exhibitors.

They are still passing them out to Veterinarians.  If you still need the
840 EID tags, contact your vet. that you use for bleeding the pigs and have
them order the tags.

*AllFlex 840 EID tag info:*

*good to share with students with livestock and/or classroom discussion

*Important Application tips for EID tags:

   -  Use the red blunt pin and remove the black insert from the base of
   the jaws.
   -  Be sure that the “bump” or raised portion of the tag which encloses
   the transponder chip, is placed in the open portion (facing out) of the
   jaws.

 If your vet. cannot get their hands on the tags they can be purchased
online.
