    Carcase Tags

    Out of interest, what are others on the site using for carcase tags? By this I mean the tag that you attach to the carcase when you take it to the game dealer.

    I've always used luggage labels with string , but I figure there has to be something better. I've been trying to source some 'proper' meat processing tags but haven't been able to identify a supplier, so if anyone has a contact please let me know

    In the meantime I had a search through eBay, as you do, and came across someone supplying party wrist bands - the sort that you get put on your wrist at shows, etc meaning that you can go back in without paying a second time. I bought 100 and they work out at around 8p each, but less if you buy larger quantities. The supplier allows two lines of printing, so I sent them a template and this is what came back:



    They seem to do the trick, as you can write the details on them with a permanent pen and then peel off the adhesive strip and attach through the rear leg.

    I get them from here:

    I believe they can also print them if required.

    Thanks for that. They must be in the Larder Equipment section of the Shop on their website, as when I had a look it said "under review".

    Bestwicks will give you their tags if you ask and I have had tags from other dealers in the past. Don't spend your own money on them. Rgds jcs

    Your game dealer should be able to supply tags with bar code/ID numbers on them, i know that i deal with Fyne Game and they leave a roll of tags with me.

    I made some up from the template in the DSC1 book and printed them out on card at home. But considering the cost of ink in my printer and decent card I decided to buy the readymade ones from the BDS.
