AKGA Tattoo Letters for Ear Tags
For informational purposes - no longer required.
Letters are used in place of years to save space on the tattoos. A tattoo that reads X014 indicates the animal was born in 2008 and in most cases the numbers “014” is the tag number placed in the animal’s ear. It is preferred, but not required, that the numbers on the ear tag match the tattooed numbers.
I, Q, O and U are never used.
