Short summary
Ear tags may result in an inflammatory response due to the wound created when they are inserted into the ear. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of ear tags on the likelihood of infection using infrared thermography and to evaluate the effect on the welfare of the lambs. Infrared thermography can be recommended as a tool to determine this type of stress and consequently allow a better evaluation of animal welfare.
