Back in 1993, I.D.ology accepted the challenge of providing an effective, efficient RFID (radio frequency identification) system for animal agriculture. When ICAR (International Committee for Animal Recording) published its standard conformance protocol as ISO 11784-11785 for low-frequency tags and readers worldwide, I.D.ology unified its development of tags and readers at this 134.2 frequency so that all tags could be read by our readers and all readers could read our tags.
I.D.ology has worked with all herd management software applications to ensure that the tags and implants being read are compatible with the available software.
I.D.ology and AniCare also provide tags and readers for the companion animal market, as serviced by shelters and veterinarians.
More recently, I.D.ology recognized application in animal agriculture for inexpensive UHF RFID tags, which are similar to those used in retail commerce. We have undertaken several research and development projects to test these new high-speed, long-range tags in agriculture.
