1 Heather Robertson

2   It is an identifying integrated circuit placed under the skin of an animal. The chips are about the size of a lager grain of rice and are based on a passive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology What is Microchip Implant?

3  Size

4

5   The microchip is placed anywhere on the animal right under the skin.  It is sealed in biocompatible glass covered by a sheath to prevent migration. Where is it placed in the animal?

6  How it is Implanted

7   The most common method in cattle is the use of RFID ear tags. Other methods:

8   Passive Tag:  No internal power supply  Instead there is a small electric current is created in the antenna when an incoming signal reaches it  Provides enough power to briefly activate the tag usually just long enough to relay the ID number or product name.  Activated from a distance of ten millimeters to over 6 meters away.  Can be smaller then the other tags and thinner than paper. The different types of tags:

9   Active Tag:  Contain an internal power source  Allows for a longer read-range and for a bigger memory on the tag  Power source also makes it possible to store information sent by the transceiver  They are slightly bigger than a coin  Can be read from many meters away, and generally have a battery life of about ten years

10   Allflex FDX EID Ear Tag – Cattle - 20/package  Price= $41.25 Different Brands and the Prices to use Microchips or RFID Tags

11   Allflex USDA HDX EID Tag - 20/Bag  Price= $53.43 Continued

12   DTR® 4 Universal Reader  Price=$1,  Will read both FDX and HDX ID tags. Continued

13   Allflex Compact Reader  Price =$  Just compatible to the Allflex brand Continued

14   SmartChip 15 Digit Microchip  Price=$12 each  Just Identification Continued

15   Destron BioTherm LifeChip  Price= $20.00 each  Identification + Temperature Continued

16   Destron Universal Microchip Reader  Price=$ Continued

17   To track lost or stolen cattle  To Help in different studies on cattle  Help detect when heifers or cows are in heat  Records the temperature of the cattle  It can help identify where a cattle are originally from to track different diseases or illegal antibiotics were use before going to the slaughter house. Uses of Microchips

18   With the different brands of the microchips or the RFID tags there is a certain computer or device that has to read them. They do not all use the same program  The Microchips may move and the RFID tags could fall out of the cattle’s ear. Disadvantages:

19   Can track all of your cattle  When sorting you can have more than one chip read at a time.  Can speed up checking in or out cattle at a feedyard or sale barn  You will be able to better manage your heard  Have the satisfaction of knowing exactly when to AI the heifers and cows.  When buying different cattle you will be able to check and make sure they are not bring any unwanted dieses to your farm. Related Advantage

21  Thank You!!! Are there any Questions?
