Looks like Sparky is trapped and using his phone to call for help. Fortunately he was just talking to a customer.

This is the system we have used for many years.
Right ear has an engraved jumbo Ritchey tag.
Left ear has a corresponding color and number, using a Y-Tex button tag. Usually, even if the big tag gets lost, the button tag stays in.
If the big tag is lost, we use a Dremel tool to engrave a new tag with another correctly colored Ritchey tag. This is done at preg checking time
each fall. If both tags happen to get lost, we still have a year brand to know how old the cow is, and can at least give her an appropriate tag
so we know her status. We leave the original calf tag in the left ear also, so that a bit more of the cow's history is evident.
