Why Cormac Tagging is an award-winning EID tag supplier – with 99% retention rate

Since entering the cattle tag market in December 2016, Cormac Tagging has been paving the way to becoming Ireland’s no.1 EID tag supplier.

Cormac Tagging is a family-owned business, based in Tuam, Co. Galway, and renowned for bringing quality products and choice to Irish farmers over the past 35 years. Cormac Tagging has been suppliers of sheep, goat and pig tags since 2001.

Acknowledging its growing loyal customer base, who have trusted Cormac Tagging with their animal identification needs over the last four years, Cormac Tagging is offering a free applicator with customers’ first order of 50 tags.

This applicator is a unique feature to the Cormac Tagging system. One applicator does both ears, without any adjustment or changing of pins.

In the video (below), operations director Ursula Kelly discusses what makes Cormac Tagging so unique from its loyal customer base, superior products, and service, to its staff who are the backbone of Cormac Tagging’s success story.

Saving time, money and hassle

Cormac Tagging’s 99% retention rate and continued free replacement tag promise on their lost tags has become extremely valuable, saving time, money and hassle for Irish farmers.

In a market where replacement tags had become an expensive norm, the cost saving to farmers on replacement tags and the reduced Department of Agriculture penalties over the last four years is now clearly evident.

From November 2021, electronic tagging looks set to become compulsory for all calves born in Ireland. The requirement of EID tags to date has been driven by technology on Irish farms rather than any mandatory regulation.

To meet these technology requirements of Irish farmers, Cormac Tagging partnered with German manufacturing company Caisley International to create its lightweight 4-gram electronic tag which does not weigh down the thin animals’ ear.

“Feedback from our customers is that our one strip, one animal tag and the ease of sample taking is also another real benefit,” says Ursula.

Customers like the large print on both male and female tags, as it makes the identification number very readable from a distance. All our tags are printed, programmed and dispatched from our company headquarters in Tuam, Co. Galway, allowing for an efficient and fast turnaround delivery service.

All-Ireland All-Star Agri Business for 2020

This year for a second year in a row, Cormac Tagging was announced as the winner of the All-Ireland All-Star Agri Business for 2020. This accolade is the latest in a long list of noteworthy achievements and awards for the company.

The accreditation and award from the All-Ireland Business Foundation was judged under titles of trust, commitment, performance, and customer-centricity. These qualities are the foundation of the company’s success, innovation and genuine customer care vision.

Commenting on the recent achievement, Ursula said: “We are extremely pleased and grateful to accept this All-Star Business award for the second consecutive year.

It’s an honour to be recognised for our market success and growth, as well as our commitment to the Irish farming community, who put their trust in our products and brand.
