Report: RFID for Food Animal ID in North America
Nov 08, 2005
Tests at Kansas State University, as well as tests performed by several wildlife management groups, have shown that UHF RFID can be used for food animal ID and is compatible with farming and ranching practices used in North America. The report outlines the use of expanded memory capacities and read/write capabilities of UHF RFID for food animal ID that are not available with current LF systems. It also highlights the greater read range provided by UHF systems that can simplify animal handling during identification.
With a number of wildlife management groups piloting UHF animal ID tags because of their increased read range and data capacity, there is a distinct probability that other types of food animals will also be identified using RFID ear tags in the future - another subject which the report addresses speculatively.
The complete report has been made available as a free download from the AIM Document Library https://www.aimglobal.org/estore/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=346
Food Traceability 2006 conference will be held on February 1-2 2006 in Dallas, USA. This hot topic is driven by health scares, bioterrorism and new laws. It will become the largest RFID application but we cover DNA and many other vital technologies as well. For further details please visit www.trackingfood.com
