Z Tags achieved phenomenal growth via a stellar retail distribution strategy, hiring exceptional experienced salespeople and delivering innovative visual tagging “systems” to the Livestock ID market. Temple Tag was founded in 1957, and was one of the forerunners in the creation and commercial sale of livestock visual ID tags. Temple’s leadership today and longevity in the Feeder/Feedlot market is a result of years of superior face to face customer service and the best products in the industry.
