About Us

Symtag was established in 1988 by Alan Symonds. After spending many years as an agricultural rep, he identified a gap in the sheep identification market and developed the one-piece plastic eartag.

Symtag supplies sheep and cattle identification tags to farmers and exporters throughout the United Kingdom.  It is based in Somerset, overlooking the fields of the Cheddar vale.

Symtag prides itself on the relationship it builds with its customers and the personal service they provide. 

Symtag is now managed on a daily basis by John Symonds and Dave Ackrill.

Orders placed before 1pm are usually despatched the same day, either by first class post or Parcelforce.

Cattle tags ordered by 3.30pm, on request, are usually despatched that day.

Normal opening hours are:

Mon - Thurs 8am - 5pm (office from 8.30am)
Fri - 8am (office from 8.30am) - 4.30pm.
