I find it funny that Tractor supply sells a digital thermometer that is designed to go "Under the tongue"...I needed a new thermometer and saw this digital one on the isle with the vet supplies. I figured, hey great, easy to read and bought it. Read the directions and says DO NOT use rectally and says to put it under the tongue. What farm animal is going to let you take a temp under the tongue? Even my tamest show heifer isn't going to put up with that...
Huh----Take it back and ask them.. Not the casher,the manager.
It was probably designed for human use.......

It'll be fine going rectally on a farm animal. ;-)
