Our tag manufacturer, Allflex, completed a computer system conversion in November 2021. Even though Allflex has restarted its production, they have not yet reached an optimal production rate to return to regular delivery turnaround times.
The normal tag order delivery time frame is 3 to 4 weeks. Currently, delivery time is at 8 weeks, and this is expected to continue for future orders during the next few months as Allflex speeds up production to reduce the backlog of orders already placed.
Before your inventory gets too low, please ensure that you order your tags in advance allowing a lead time of 8 weeks.
