EDIVAL – EdiPorc ID (2001)
Electronic identification tag and informatisation
In order for every breeder to quickly collect breeding data in a secured way, EDIPORC.ID combines an electronic identification tag, a portable reader and a database.
Every sow holds an electronic identification tag. A portable reader specially designed for the use in breeding conditions, allows the breeder to read the tag and to take hold of the data regarding that animal on the spot. In the office, the breeder lies the portable down on its base. Simultaneously, through this only contact, the battery of the portable
reader is loaded, the EDIPORC database is updated and the portable reader is freshened up. EDIPORC.ID puts an end to the manual uptake of data.
Due to the present context of food security, the pig-breeding sector will face growing requirements for reliable data. EDIPORC.ID guarantees a reliable identification of the animal, the validity of data from the start on and its transfer without loss.
