We have tried many tattoo outfits. The three we sell are our pick as the best to use with dairy goats. Here's why:
They're made by Stone. Stone equipment is top quality and lasts a long time.├é┬á
The digits are tab-into-slot design. You can't insert a digit upside down, and there's less chance of dropping one when you're changing the digits. They lock firmly into place; you don't need blanks for empty spaces. Needles are nickel-plated precision-made for uniform penetration.├é┬á
The .300 and 5/16-inch tongs make small tattoos, which are perfect for most dairy goats and quite a bit smaller than the 3/8-inch tattoo tongs. The 3/8-inch tattoo outfit is ideal for the larger Nubian and Boer goat ear.├é┬á
If you raise LaManchas or if most of your work is with newborn Swiss breed kids, you will like the .300 tattoo best. It's the most compact.├é┬á
If you raise Nubians or frequently tattoo adult goats, the 5/16 inch tattoo is better. The throat of the tongs is a bit longer. You can buy this outfit with an ear release which is handy with large ears and nervous animals.├é┬á
The 3/8-inch tattoo outfit will work well for both Nubians and Boer goats.├é┬á
