Excelant for sheep.
I tried tattooing but that turned out to be unreadable with multi colored ears. I decided to go with ear tags but all I could find were ones bigger than the sheep ears. Even the ones made for sheep & goats. I finally found these piglet tags. They are perfect. I use a pence soldering iron to melt a number in the tag then use a sharpie to blacken the grove. I also added notches in the outer rim to denote which herd the sheep belongs too.
These are perfect for sheep.
As for price this site had them cheaper than any other & beat the farm stores around here that could get then.
My "hobby farm" started as an ester present for my son and has grown from there. The price that I paid for these tags got me both the front and back of the tag for a little less than around here just for either the back, or if your were lucky the front. These tags came with a large area to write your own number or number-letter combo on both the front and back. If you use the right color contrast, yellow on black or purple on white for example, you can see the tag number very easily even though the tag is only a "dot", actually I think that it is easier than standard sheep tags.
