Extended Ordering Hours For Same Day Tag Despatch

Allflex has announced that it has extended its cut-off time for the same day despatch of replacement cattle ear tags, with all orders made before 4:30pm guaranteed to be sent out by first class post on the day they are ordered.


“Feedback from our customers tells us that the later deadline time could make a significant difference to busy livestock farmers who need to order replacement ear tags in a hurry,” explains Ashley Musgrave, General Manager of Allflex UK.


“The majority of tag suppliers in the UK have cut-off times between 2pm and 3pm, or in extreme circumstances 4:00pm.  Unfortunately these early deadlines can hamper the movement of cattle, so we have extended our own cut-off time to 4:30pm.  This will make it easier for farmers to acquire replacement tags at short notice – either in order to take advantage of fluctuating market prices, or simply to enable them to take cattle to shows or auction marts.”


As long as the tags are successfully authorised by BCMS (British Cattle Movement Service), Allflex guarantees that any order placed before 4:30pm will be despatched on the same day.


The new cut-off time applies to all orders made through Allflex merchants as well as those placed directly with Allflex.  For more information, or to place an order, visit, call 01207 523175 or fax 0800 783 6655.
