When using a tattoo plier for livestock identification, it's crucial to follow best practices to ensure the markings are clear, permanent, and safe for the animals.

  • Begin by restraining the animal securely, preferably in a squeeze chute, and clean the ear with rubbing alcohol to remove any wax or debris that could affect the tattoo's clarity. It's advisable to clip hair from the tattoo area for better visibility and to prevent interference with the ink.
  • Use a halter for additional control if necessary.
  • When applying the tattoo, make sure the digits are correctly aligned and the pliers are set firmly to ensure the ink penetrates the skin adequately.
  • After tattooing, use a toothbrush or similar tool to rub more ink into the punctures, enhancing the permanence of the mark.
  • Disinfect the equipment between animals to maintain biosecurity measures.
  •  Regularly check the tattoos for legibility, as hair growth can cause fading over time.
  • Lastly, prioritize human safety while working around the animals, as proper restraint is essential to prevent injuries.
