GAO RFID provides a diverse selection of RFID tracking devices for animals that enables farmers, breeders, and veterinarians to fulfill their traceability and identification needs. The RFID tags for animals are available at a variety of frequencies that include 134 kHz low frequency, 134.2 kHz frequency, 125 kHz low frequency and 860 MHz to 960 MHz operation frequency. Most of these tags are compliant and support various protocols such as ISO 11784, ISO 11785, ISO 14443A, ISO 15693, ISO 18000-6C, EM 4001, EM4005, EM4100, EM4102, EPC, ICAR. The tags are offered in different materials and designs to comply with different needs. There are LF Glass Tube RFID tags that are enclosed in biocompatible glass, designed as a harmless tag for livestock and pets, which is injected under the skin of the animal. Additionally there are embeddable RFID tags usually used for pets and UHF animal ear tags that are usually made of thermoplastic polyurethane or polyester and are commonly for applications that demand high anti-collision rates. Most of the animal RFID tags are waterproof and shock resistant.
The animal RFID tags enable users such as livestock farmers, breeders and veterinarians to track livestock or identify pets and exotics, as well as laboratory animals. These tags can be use for many applications such as farming, laboratory research and even for pet owners. The tags can be either, in a glass tube that is injected into the animal’s skin or it can be an ear tag that hangs in the animal’s ear. With a variety of frequencies available and protocols that enable short to middle range reading, these not sensitive to radio interference tags provide solutions to a wide variety of traceability and identification needs.
