Technological advanced animal identification and registration systems

Various systems for animal identification and registration
based on an electronic transponder will be developed.

In the TIRES project various systems for animal identification and registration based on an electronic transponder will be developed. The need for proper animal identification and registration in the livestock industry is becoming increasingly important. The existing identification systems, although relatively satisfactory to individual segments of the industry, do not allow adequate transfer of information and can cause errors. Mass application of low-cost transponders with a unique life number and suitable for automatic reading will overcome the disadvantages of the existing systems. To facilitate mass application, an implantable transponder will be developed, with a reading distance that enables the use of the transponder in an automated identification system. Such a system does not exist at the moment and requires new technologies. TIRES will be a joint effort of the livestock industry, related research institutes and the electronic industry. For the livestock industry, TIRES holds out a prospect of a major improvement in the quality of the animal product and an increase in productivity (in the livestock industry) based on advanced technological concepts.
