    On the other side I recall a discussion with the NSW Director general or Agriculture where I opined that the tag system would stop rustling to which he replied thathe wished that his cattle weren't being stolen.
    You can see a tag on one of the second row cattle ( and on the ones in the first row now I look closer) but they all should have one when branded.
    Agree something doesn’t add up.......

    I cannot remember how it works, my grazier mate did explain years ago.

    It would depend how often they muster.

    Who ever took them would have troubles with paper work for tagging.

    Read the book ('Cattle Duffers of the Outback' years ago written by a family who bought a station in FNQ and had to deal with duffing all the time. Local cop turned a blind eye because they family they claimed were pinching their stock was so influential.

    'The only time a station owner eats his own beef is when he's eating at his neighbours.'

    Well they picked this up after a bangtail muster , so it can't be accurate , and is probably worse as usually bangtail musters count cattle that have never been branded.
