An efficient and interesting day’s work
Ear tags from OS ID combined with readers, monitoring applications, traceability solutions, automated machinery and other devices save the farmer time. One can also rest assured that the data extracted are 100% reliable. These aids let the farmer easily register and monitor animals – both on the farm and when on pasture.
