“The identifier (reader) is made as simple as possible”, was the comment from Agricultural Eng. Martin Palacios during his presentation at the World Hereford Conference yesterday afternoon.
With a large presence of foreign audience, the commercial manager explained that when the mandatory identification system began in Uruguay, his company saw the possibility to develop an identifier which also engaged in the management. “It is a concept which can be independent from the traceability one and refers to the rodeo management”, said Palacios. The company proposes that at the same time that tasks with the animals are carried out, “notes” can be taken which report different attributes, such as weight, sanitary, genealogical or reproductive information, to be able to then manage this information and make better management decisions.
