Tail paint stays on well

Once heifers are confirmed pregnant at this farm, their tailheads are painted bright green. “We use tail paint because it shows up well from a distance and stays on for a long time,” says Don Gardner, veterinarian and custom-heifer raiser in Huddleston, Va. If a heifer in one of the bred-heifer pens arrives at the bunk without her tail paint, she is immediately re-checked. Gardner prefers the Mark-Her Livestock Paint because, in his experience, it stays on pastured heifers the longest.
