Do You Know the Modern Method to Get Information from Animals Ear Tag?

Humans have been using brands to recognize livestock animals for hundreds of years. In prehistoric times it was more of a ritualistic act. During the middle Ages in Europe, hot branding was used to identify the owner of livestock. This has sustained all the way through history. In the American West branding is often associated with trail drives and cattle rustlers. Electronic animal identification is a significant technology in contemporary animal husbandry offering immense benefits. Low-frequency applications are high-tech within the radio frequency classification of animals.

Ultra-high-frequency (UHF) submissions are appropriate for this purpose. Still, UHF systems have inadequacies through their defenselessness to metallic surfaces and liquids. Therefore, the reflection and amalgamation of electromagnetic radiation in the animals’ environment is often challenging. Modern farming techniques dictate careful and accurate control of livestock, including the skill to tell apart individual animals. Livestock ear or recognition tags have been generally used to identify livestock for centuries. The use of identification tags has led to vast improvements in competence in agricultural industries, in addition to enhanced safety and lower costs to consumers because disease and genetic mutations are more easily identified with each improvement in the tracking of livestock.

There are many types of identification devices in use, such as rings, tattoos, and identification tags. The concluding ones are attached to the ear of the animal. Normally they include inkjet or laser markings which recognize, for example, the animal on top of the location where it was raised. EID tags are small “button-like” tags that are positioned in the ear. Each EID tag has an exclusive 15-digit number printed on it, and the number can also be read by scanning the tag with an EID reader. These tags are intended to last for the life of the animal. RFID’s are commonly exploited for electronically identifying animals or objects. In many submissions, the transponder unit is laden with data and attached to an animal or object which is to be recognized.

An excellent application of non-powered RFID system is revealed for identification of animals in a meat-processing place. The reason for identifying individual animals in a meat-processing plant is for safety and sterilization reasons, and to perk up the meat quality and farming methods.

An Animal ear tag typically carries an Animal Identification Number (AIN) or code for the particular animal or for its herd or flock which helps in tracing and finding the animal and to know the detailed information about the animal.

Have You Used The Animal Tag For Your Pet Management?

Everyone loves having pets. They offer unconditional love and give the owner a sense of relaxation from the stressful life. It is evident that owning a pet is not as easy as you think. Everything needs to be scheduled and managed form their food and comfort to managing them when they’re out of the house. However, one must always be prepared for catastrophic situations, such as those when your pet gets lost. In such situations, people generally search for them in their vicinity, but that is not always helpful.

On the other hand, using the conventional manual tracking and identification methods that have long been used for livestock management is also not recommended, although, with improvements in technology, better techniques have been introduced that are more efficient and time-saving. RFID tags have proven to be quite helpful for pet owners as well as farmers, as this microchip tags provide effective traceability, thus ensuring safety.

RFID tags have a unique number that can individually identify your pet, as this RFID tags links to the database which already consists of the information of your pet. This information is about the date of birth, breed, owner’s information and more. RFID tagging has become a significant part of modern farm management. There are many reliable RFID animal tags available in the market nowadays. It also helps the suppliers to track their livestock accurately when any cross-border and national trading of livestock takes place.

Already being used far and wide in the livestock industry, RFID has been successful in serving more than one purposes, for instance, it is becoming set up across the entire food chain for tracking. This tag is easy to use, secure and highly efficient in pet identification. These tags can be applied easily on your pet as per the directions of the manufacturer. For the security of your pet, there is a wide range of ear tags and implantable RFID glass tags available in the market that is cost-effective and can be installed on any animal.

Radio Frequency Identification card

RFID cards have been around for many years in various forms and mostly used in access control, security and financial applications. The technology utilized was most likely proprietary to their supplier and no open systems had existed. Most of these cards used passive RFID techniques in the frequency range of 125kHz to 135kHz. These cards were considerably thicker than most common photo ID cards, much more expensive, had limited memory space and could only be read one at a time.

Most utilization of RFID cards involved “proximity”- “contact-less” cards. These cards replaced the popular contact cards that used actual metallic contacts on its surface, or embedded ferro-magnetic wires for communications. The “proximity” card applications provided a high degree of security, however the performance range of the card was typically limited to a couple of inches, at most.

During the past few years numerous standards have emerged and are currently being adopted by the RFID transponder manufacturers. ISO 14443 for “proximity” cards and ISO 15693 for “vicinity” cards, both recommend 13.56 MHz as its carrier frequency. These standards feature a thinner card, higher memory space availability and allow numerous cards in the field to be read almost simultaneously using anti-collision, bit masking and time slot protocols.

ISO 14443 proximity cards offer a maximum range of only a few inches. It is primarily utilized for financial transactions such as automatic fare collection, bank card activity and high security applications. These applications prefer a very limited range for security.
ISO 15693 vicinity cards offer a maximum usable range of out to 28 inches from a single antenna or as much as 4 feet using multiple antenna elements and a high performance reader system.

Magnetic Stripe Card

Magnetic Stripe Card is made from high-strength high-temperature-resistant plastic or paper-coated plastic, damp-proof, wear-proof, flexible, portable, stable and reliable. In general, one side of the magnetic card is printed information tips, e.g.: direction of inserting the card; another side of the magnetic card has magnetic layer or magnetic stripe, with 2-3 magnetic tracks recording relevant information data.

Application: The magnetic stripe has three magnetic tracks. The former two magnetic tracks are read-only magnetic tracks, and the third magnetic track is read-write magnetic track, e.g.: recording book balance, etc. The magnetic card is relatively simple and easy in reading and writing information, easy in use and low in cost, so it has got developed early, and has been applied to many fields, e.g.: telephone prepaid card, rate card, appointment card, entrance ticket, deposit card, credit card, etc.

Features of Magnetic Stripe Card

Features of Magnetic Stripe: Data are readable and writable, that is, the capacity of changing data on the site; data storage can meet demands; easy in use and low in cost. These advantages broaden the magnetic card’s application fields, e.g.: credit card, bank ATM card, membership card, cash card (such as telephone magnetic card), air ticket, bus ticket, vending card, etc. The limiting factor of the magnetic card technology is that time of the data storage is restricted by the durability of the magnetic particle polarity. Additionally, data security of the magnetic card is relatively low, e.g.: careless contact of magnetic material results in loss or disorder of the magnetic card’s data; to enhance security performance of the data storage, the magnetic card must use related technologies, which increase the cost. With the development of new technology, the magnetic card with relatively-poor security performance is gradually replaced. Under the existing conditions, due to a large number of existing magnetic card equipment, maturity of the magnetic card and low cost, the magnetic card technology is still applied to many fields in a short term.
