RFID Animal Management
RFID Animal Management and identification, a worldwide market, grows about 30% every year. RFID technology today identifies several hundred millions animals, such as pigs, sheep, goats, cows, deer, horses, fish and pigeons.
RFID provides benefits over barcodes, such as not requiring a line-of-sight between the tag and reader, and the ability to read RFID tags at a distance. Thanks to the anti-collision technology, RFID readers can identify several animals simultaneously by reading their tags. The technology improves automation and logistics, as well as reduces labor costs. Through improved traceability, RFID livestock management also increases consumer protection from animal-borne diseases.
RFID enhances theft protection by giving each animal unique and encrypted information. Meat industry stakeholders can improve disease control by storing and updating vaccination and movement data directly into each animal’s chip, or by correlating the identification number with this information in the backend system. Such traceability ensures consumers healthy and tasty meat, with clear proof of origin.
The ability to track livestock and their movements allows governments to trace what occurs in the supply chain, and to tax each player appropriately. In the case of disease outbreaks, the technology makes it possible to identify which flocks have been affected, which helps to avoid unnecessary waste.
RFIDK offers various solutions for RFID Animal Identification depending on the type of application and the size of the animal. The flexible and reliable transponders comprise advanced security features and comply with government regulations as well as the international ISO standards 11784 and 11785.
The product range for animal identification includes glass transponders for pets, zoo animals, fish and smaller farm animals such as goats. Consisting of biocompatible glass, our glass tags are available in a variety of versions and sizes and can also be embedded into a ceramic shell for bolus application.
Our Coil & Chip for ear tags is a convenient, reliable and cost-effective solution for livestock identification. The products are available in different sizes and with various integrated circuits employing both full duplex (FDX) and half-duplex (HDX) technologies optimized for electronic livestock identification.
