XP 820: Economic Advantages


Between 2003 and 2008 eleven herd studies were conducted on the new XP 820 insecticide ear tag to determine the difference in weight gain versus non-tagged animals.


The results were...


  • Average Weaning Weight - 52.4 lbs. higher!
  • Average Daily Gain - .37 lbs/day higher!
Based on these eleven studies conducted in Kentucky, Indiana, and New Mexico for an average of 16 weeks, and using an average of $1 per pound selling price, the XP 820 provided the following economic advantages.
  • $5 invested in XP 820 returns $52.40
