All calves need to be vaccinated. It helps prevent them from getting sick and helps build up their immune system. We had to run all the calves through the chute system and give them shots and tattoo them. Tattooing is a means of identification we put a tattoo gun in their ear and they each get different letters based on their ear tag. Tattooing is also for registration, whenever you go to a show they check your tattoo so that they can make sure it's the animal you registered. Another way of identification is by branding; we don't brand because in our opinion it takes away from the overall look of the animal. When you tattoo you have to use a tattoo paste; it helps to read the tattoo. One setback: it's green, and it gets all over your hands and is really hard to get out.
