EID Requirements and Electronic Reading Equipment.

New rules on the electronic identification (EID) of sheep introduce stringent requirements on stock traceability.

From January 2011 individual animal information must be record for electronically identified animals.  From 31 December 2011 individual animal information must be recorded for all animals (except those born before 31 December 2009 which are going to slaughter).

Tags can be read manually or electronically.  Those involved in reading a large number of tags such as Central Point Recording Centre's including auction marts and abattoirs or farms with large number of stock may find an electronic reading system provides a fast and efficient method of recording data.  Furthermore, as most EID reading equipment can be integrated with stock management software farmers may also find EID equipment advantageous.
