Animal Ear Tag Number Necklace

Be a voice for the voiceless with these conversation starters!

To me, ear tags epitomize the mistreatment of sentient beings as objects. My jewelry and accessories represent the lives of thousands of cows, sheep, pigs and goats subjected to the tortures of animal agriculture.

The tag numbers featured in my work are the same as those worn by actual cows with whom I have had contact. Like us, each is an individual. “366” sucked on my hand and let me pet her muzzle. “117” was shy and reluctant to get too close. These loving creatures are NOT just numbers.

Choose the style that most resonates with you. Or get more than one and wear them together!

that a cow’s natural lifespan is over 20 years, but female dairy cows are typically slaughtered when “no longer productive” at around age 4 - 6 years old? The fate of males is far worse!

    I’ve worn this almost every day since receiving it! I am very vocal about animal rights issues, and seeing the tag as a reminder of the lives animals live on factory farms helps me to keep on fighting for them even when it feels hopeless. (This is a great conversation-starter, too!)
