Ear Notching Diagram

LITTER #

PIG #

  • Ear notching is done to mark each pig with the litter number on the pig’s right ear and the pig number on the pig’s left ear. A triangular tool is used similar to a hole punch.

  • It is easier to identify each pig with ear notching and uneconomical to ear tag each piglet like you would with lambs and calves.
