In livestock management, RFID is used to identify and track individual animals, including cows, bison, pigs, goats and more. RFID tags let farmers do more than just identify individual animals. The tags and accompanying software can store an animal’s entire history, including its weight, age, sex, birthing time, offspring and medical records. This enables veterinarians, for example, to simply scan an animal’s tag to obtain detailed information about that animal’s health. It’s all part of a trend toward “smart farming” that uses Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to manage all aspects of livestock management.
