Our product innovation Eartag LIFE will get awarded with the Innovation Award EuroTier 2016. There were more than 251 applications for this award.
Eartags, in contrast to any other animal identification systems, remain on animals from birth through to destocking from farms. Previous attempts at integrating additional functions such as animal monitoring sensors in eartags proved to be infeasible, not least due to the difficulty of supplying sufficient energy to sensors. Eartag LIFE is an eartag system for cattle that can also be used for official animal identification, real-time location and health monitoring purposes. Due to their low weight, these eartags can be used on calves from birth, allowing data to be collected seamlessly throughout animals’ full life cycle, from birth to destocking, for the first time. Individual animals can be located via integrated LEDs, even where they form part of larger groups. Location functions can be accessed both in animal housing and on pastures. The sensors’ energy supply is sufficient to last for several years. The system saves farmers time in terms of behaviour monitoring, general animal husbandry tasks and quality assurance and therefore provides benefits across the full spectrum of cattle farming operations.
