One of Ireland’s oldest co-ops, Mullinahone Co-Op in Tipperary, has gone digital with a new online tag-ordering service for farmers, which went live this week.

It will allow farmers to order tags at any time, eliminating the need to complete and post order forms.

Farmers will need to complete a simple registration process to order their tags online. Speaking to AgriLand, Liam Egan of Mullinahone Co-Op said: “This will be a short procedure that involves answering a number of questions to create the online account and so far it is going very well.”

Applicants will then be issued with a temporary password that will allow them to access online ordering. This password must be changed to one of their own choosing on their first visit to the website.

The new online ordering system, available here, will operate initially for cattle tags only, both new and replacement tags. Mullinahone Co-op intends to add official sheep tags to its online service in early 2014. Mullinahone Co-Op was formed in 1893.
