If you would like to donate ear tags, check out the article below..

MILLER, S.D. - South Dakota Ag in the Classroom is seeking donations of animal ear tags from livestock producers for a hands-on activity during National Ag Week.



“Some of the most popular questions kids had from our ag week activities in the past concerned ear tags,” said Ann Price, South Dakota Ag in the Classroom Executive Director. “They wanted to know why producers tag their animals and how the tags work. This year our National Ag Week activity is going to try and address some of those questions.”



In order to give youth a true hands-on experience, Price is seeking livestock producers who have extra ear tags on-hand to consider donating them to Ag in the Classroom for use in kits that volunteers will use during presentations at various classrooms across the state.



According to Price, “I want the youth to be able to touch the tags, see how they stay in the animal’s ear and see how different producers customize the information on the tags to fit their operation.”



“The tags do not have to be new. All we ask is that they are clean, in good condition, and are not coated with pesticides or are not fly tags,” Price said. “They can be blank or numbered. They do not have to be just cattle tags. Sheep, goat or hog tags are welcome too. The more types, shapes, colors and sizes, the better.”



South Dakota Ag in the Classroom is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. The value of the tags can be deducted from your income taxes as a donation.



If you would like to donate ear tags, send them to South Dakota Ag in the Classroom, PO Box 402, Miller, S.D. 57362. E-mail Price at sdagclassroom@yahoo.com or call her at 605-853-6040 if you have questions or would like more information.
