My grandfather was notorious for raising his own cattle, sheep, and other farm animals. He was very careful over how his animals were branded and tagged properly, and would obsess over making sure every animal on his farm had Allflex tagging on them. Being a young kid getting in the way wasn’t an option for getting in the way, either you were out working on the farm, or you were out working on the farm, no ifs ands or buts about it.

Grandpa made sure every single one of his cows were tagged properly and using Allflex was important to him because it was a brand he trusted and used often. Just one week after we tagged all the livestock with Allflex, and I am sure glad we did, one of the cattle wondered off due to one of us kids leaving the gate open to the pasture. Grandpa made a  point to make sure all of us grandchildren walked around the neighborhood to find the missing cow.
