    Tracking and Tagging with Permanent IDs

    Farms of all shapes and sizes are increasingly moving towards new technologies to assist them in the tagging and tracking of their cows, pigs, sheep, and goats. Using RFID Animal Tags to individually identify and track each livestock, the GAO RFID Asset Tracking System provides a way for you to monitor inventory levels, attain health information on individual animals, and guarantees a unique way of identifying livestock across your premises.

    Disease Prevention

    No matter how clean the environment is and what line of prevention one has, there’s always the risk that disease could still occur. With the GAO Asset Tracking System, the technology will guard against livestock disease by storing and updating vaccination information directly on each animal’s RFID tag, thereby ensuring that animal welfare isn’t comprised, productivity isn’t reduced, and human beings aren’t at a risk of infection.

    Time Management

    There are a number of responsibilities to livestock management that span the gamut. In ensuring that these tasks are completed and adequately documented, the GAO RFID Personnel Tracking System has often been employed. One can now manage land access and labour efficiency with the simple click of a button, giving them the peace of mind of knowing that their farming activities are being appropriately completed. Each personnel is provided an RFID Badge, and this badge can be used to access the premises and machinery, or log into workstations across the facility. Each time the RFID Badge passes a station, the activity is logged–this is how you can retrieve information and assess productivity in your business.
