RFID Animal & Livestock Management Solution : RFIT ALMS Pro
RFID technology has been used to identify millions of livestock animals around the world. These systems track meat and dairy animals, valuable breeding stock and laboratory animals involved in lengthy and expensive research projects.
RFID transponders are worn as ear tags ,feet tags (for Birds) or as an inter-ruminal capsules. Farm management can be fully automated for such processes as feeding, weighing, disease management, and breeding practices.
RFID Tags, with an operating frequency of 134 kHz, has been adopted internationally for animal identification applications following many years of development, exhaustive testing and practical field evaluation.
Most RFID Tags used for livestock identification are factory programmed with a unique 64-bit code which is tamper proof and cannot be duplicated. All animal data is stored in secure data-bases where it can only be accessed by authorized users.
Challenges faced in Animal & Livestock management are:
· Visual Identification is time consuming and prone to errors(requiring manual animal restraint)
· Build up of grime on the tag obscures barcodes
· Animal & live stock management currently occurs on a flock to flock basis, the benefit and value of identifying individual animal or livestock is not being taken advantage of.
· Disease management
To overcome these challenges, The Australian National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) is the first and the largest implementation of RFID for animal tracking in the world. Till date they have saved millions by adopting this technology and soon will become mandatory for all Animal & livestock companies to implement RFID Systems to indentify their stocks.
The advantages that Animal & Livestock companies would benefit will be :
· Automatic capture of identification data with long range,handheld and high throughput capability
· Easier management of flock information- the reduction in the need for paperwork and manual input
· Electronic identification eliminates never-ending paperwork and allows farmers to have accurate livestock data on hand
· Allows for speedy information and statistics retrieval
· Allows for individual animal & livestock management
· Accurate traceability for animal disease management
· Significant cost savings within the byproduct pipeline
· Ability to scan the RFID tags to utilize artificial insemination data, Live stock weights, pregnancy testing, byproduct testing and tracking of every animal & livestock on a farm.
· Increase Profitability & efficiency
The International Standards Organization (ISO) and the Australian/New Zealand standards for the electronic identification of animals are based on LF 134.2 kHz RFID technology. (ISO11784/11785, AS5018/5019).

These claims have not been supported during field evaluation with walk-through readers. For this reason, RFID tags are used almost exclusively for livestock where performance and reliability are important. FDX tag performance is adequate where animals can be individually handled and scanned with hand-held readers.
