When is it too late to ear tag lambs? Mine are 4 months old. We only have 7 ewes and 13 lambs.

It's never too late. Some people only tag them at sale time, if needed. Others like us do theirs shortly after birth or within a few days, when they're easier to catch and handle. Older sheep that have lost their tags can be redone also, using the same hole if it's not torn, or a new one if it is.

Trust me, the younger the better.
