As breeders, we are always looking for different ways of doing things. Cattle Clobber makes strong, light, cattle collars (just like a dog collar only bigger). We have found that, by attaching fly tags to the collar, cattle can be protected from flies without the need for another hole in the ear of the cattle.
The tag is under to collar and can't be seen. Collars are simply taken off when the fly season is over.

Collars need to be a snug fit and worn in paddocks where they are unlikely to catch on anything. When cattle are wearing collars it is always a good idea to check them periodically to make sure everything is all in place.
