    I was tagging my goats the other day and had trouble getting the applicator to close. The last time I used it, it was easy. The applicator I have is from Premier 1. It is the one that I got with my tags and it was free so I didn't complain. What I am wanting to know is if the tags were too cold or if I need a better applicator. My friend has the same applicator as I do and she couldn't tag the goats either, her husband had to do it and he barely got them in.


    Here is the link to my applicator:

    I bet it's the cold. Maybe bring it in the house for a day before you try again.

    Thanks. I was thinking it was just the cold. I had them outside in the barn in a sealed box. I will keep them in the house from now on.
