    I would hazard a guess that the tags on their ears isn't just to make them look pretty

    As @creese pointed out -

    Tagging your cattle
    You must ensure that all cattle born on or after 1 January 1998 have an official ear tag in each ear. This is known as ‘double tagging’. Each tag must show the same unique number for that animal.

    There are two types of ear tag - primary and secondary. The main ear tag, known as the primary ear tag, is a yellow, plastic, two-piece ear tag.

    Since 1 January 2000, ear tag numbers must have a specific numeric format. They contain the crown logo, country code, herdmark, individual animal number and check digit. Secondary ear tags can be printed to allow space for management information. This information can include details relevant to a particular animal, such as visual identification, its name or a different unique number. This is useful so you don’t need to check that the herd mark and single number check digit match the animal’s number, eg for medication. There is no minimum size requirement for secondary tags, so button or metal tags may be used.

    You must fit ear tags within 20 days of an animal’s birth, with the exception of dairy cattle, which must have at least one tag fitted within 36 hours of birth.

    Thankfully we do have pictures of the tags, so we should be able to trace the owner.....which we are in the process of doing :-)

    To be honest - there is cause for concern. Had they barged through the door - it'd have been positively friesian last night.

    I was sat here thinking "Wow, that's a bit harsh!" until I saw that post from @fiza.

    Not like me to miss a pun (or three)! Is it the weekend yet?

    Go back to sheep. Your 8-hours-a-day are farmer important than people realise.

    @JamesBanks7 Oooh that was a good one! Wish I'd have thought of that.
