In line with the Fane Valley mantra of “Making Farming Easier” they have always endeavoured to make it simple for their customers to gain access to quality products at competitive prices.

Fane Valley has recently strengthened its trading relationship with Allflex that will result in their customers benefiting from significant cost savings when purchasing BVD cattle tags.  Allflex are the world leader for Livestock Identification tags with over half a billion animals worldwide being identified with their product each year.  NI cattle farmers have made the Allflex BVD Tissue Sample Tag the tag of choice resulting in it becoming the market leading tag in NI.  Key to this is that the Tissue sample needle remains in the tagger after the tag is applied which greatly reduces the chance of empty samples and minimises the likelihood of samples lost if inadvertently dropped.  Herd keepers greatly appreciate the clear bold print on the tags that does not fade over time making it easy to identity animals at a distance. 

Pat Donnelly, Livestock Identification Manager for Fane Valley Stores said, “We have been selling the market leading Allflex cattle tags for over a decade now and its popularity with our customers speaks for itself.  By having tag machines located in 12 of our stores throughout Northern Ireland we have made it very convenient for farmers throughout the country to avail of both new cattle and sheep tags as well as replacements tags printed while they wait.  Tags can also be ordered and collected in any of our 16 stores.  For those not able to make it into their local store tags can be ordered by calling the Fane Valley Tag Hotline on 028 9261 0490 where tags can be delivered direct to their farm”. 

Pat continued, “With the majority of the Fane Valley Stores staff coming from a farming background, they have acquired an excellent understanding of what the farmer needs, and are able to deliver expert advice and a high-level of customer service, all year round.”
