Pig Slapper Tattoo Hammer (for hog identification tattoos)

Pig Slapper Tattoo Hammer is a tool used to brand hogs and other livestock for identification to transport swine to slaughter.
Tattoo Hammers in animal processing plants (requirement by the USDA) are used to identify and track the hog through the entire meat packing process. “Pig slapping” or hog identification tattooing can be for temporary or permanent pig and hog tattoos. A hog hammer tattoo may involve dies or tattoo ink, and replaceable letters to tag the hog or other livestock. There are many requirements to the pig and hog slapping process which are explained by the USDA (published August 2011).
