With three million calves born in Ireland annually, Cormac Tagging decided to meet that challenge caused by BVD testing head-on, leading to the development of the Tissue Sample Wristband.
Calves born in the country must all have a tissue sample taken as part of BVD testing. This process has now been made easier with the Tissue Sample Wristband from Cormac Tagging, which is worn on a farmer’s wrist while tagging. It is a non-evasive way for farmers to hold tubes, whilst preventing delays and allowing them to continue with the tagging process.
The Wristband is capable of holding up to 12 samples at once, as seen in the video, taking the hassle of dealing with small tubes away from farmers. The Wristband prevents samples from being lost, misplaced and mixed up before they get sent to the lab. In fact, the Wristband is that it can be used to store samples until they are ready for being sent to the lab.
This means farmer’s save money by not having to re-order tags, whilst also saving time by not having to carry out the whole tagging process again.
“This innovation is a simple solution to an international farming challenge.”
This revolutionary design by Cormac Tagging helped them win the Gold Award at the National Dairy Show 2018.Video Produced by TF Media.
