    Same here.
    We have to have our certification and premise ID when we go to shows.

    Yeah, I don't like tags or tagging an animal either but darn it sure helps me keep records easier.

    I don't do tags either since my goats are tattooed but the more goats I get and the more they look similar at a glance the more I am thinking tags, but not ear tags, collar tags. I have never seen a dairy goat with an ear tag. How would a person tag a La Mancha? We tattoo the tail web but can't do a tag there.

    La Mancha are either tagged in the tail web or tattooed on the tail....you just tattoo your farm id and the scrapie number then dispose of the tag....we clip them shut with the pliers and keep them in a small tupperware in our feed room. I could not put a tag in the tail web i would be way to paranoid the buck would rip it out during rut.
