Animal Electronic Identification (EID)


Electronic Identification (EID, also known as Radio Frequency Identification or RFID), with its ability to identify and trace individual animals, has become increasingly important as traceability schemes are implemented worldwide to manage food safety and biosecurity risks.

 

When teamed with a weighing system this technology also has the potential to improve farm management decisions by leaps and bounds.
