    Were they all from 2013 born stock by any chance agreid?

    Last winter we lost around 10% of tags. A dept inspector commented that it was very common....

    Would the missing tags happen to be the White bvd tags? Very very common for them to break, even the more recent "improved" ones still break easy enough

    That's fair enough, a lot of the inspectors have some common sense once you look to be putting the effort in.

    Yeah the button tags seem to last better but the yellow bvd tags were useless. They were replacing them free of charge just if you told them there the bvd tags.

    If there are changes to the details of a herd number, does the Quality Assurance have to start from scratch again?

    As in same herdnumber but different names on it? Also if anyone knows for the various Angus/Hereford schemes too I'd appreciate it.

    Changed from 2 herd numbers to a farm partnership here, told Bord bia what we were doing and it was no problem at all just continued the same as if nothing changed.
