All the manufacturers say not to put in calves until 3 months old. Has anyone put them in earlier? Any problems?

When I used them I didnt tag the calves. I am not sure on the specifics about the recommendations of that but I do know that there are tags out there that are approved for use in calves under three months of age. They may not be real potent, but this is one example. I know this one has been out longer than I've probably been alive.
