In my first post on this topic I explored some ways that people seek to apply electronic identification (EID or RFID tags) on pastoral farms. We looked at using EID to support bio-security and disease control, and for inventory management. Thanks to all those who shared that article with others.
Over the past 15 years a number of countries have adopted mandatory radio-frequency identification for livestock. In livestock circles this is known as “Electronic Identification” or EID, and it operates by giving each animal a machine-readable unique number – a modern take on the bar code.
