A permanent EID antenna panel is fixed in place for hands-free reading of EID tags in a specific area. Our panel readers are the best choice for animal identification at a fixed location, such as a weighing crate or in a race.
The Gallagher SmartReader BR and R Series ranges incorporate the latest electronics technology, are fully ISO compliant and are
capable of reading both HDX and FDX-B tags.
Choose between the fully featured SmartReader BR Series model with internal rechargeable battery and large tag memory, and the standard featured SmartReader R Series model.
SmartReader Electronic Identification (EID) uses Ear Tags which contain a chip, programmed with a unique animal ID number, which can be automatically read by a non-contact reader. In addition ensuring full compliance with todayís trace-ability legislation, EID provides easily accessible, accurate information on individual livestock. This information is the basis of managing and tracking the number and performance of the animals and allows many livestock management and handling tasks to be automated.
"Using Electronic Identification (EID) technology is faster, easier, and much
more accurate than the way we used to collect and record information to support our
angus stud herd. Itís a simple operation to record all data individually against each
animal and to be able to transfer it to our computer systems."
Tim Brittain, Owner of Storth Oaks Angus Stud - New Zealand.
