Abstract

Reliability, efficacy and the efficiency of EID of animals according to RFID technology were assessed across different animal production filiere. Accident occurrence, un-detectability of electronic code, as well as technical aspects due to different types of devices deployed were considered before setting up a cost/benefit analysis of the system based on RFID technology for traceability purposes. A coded manual of operations for the electronic identification of animals in the practice on a large scale according different electronic devices (injectable transponders or ceramic boluses) was implemented. An experimental Help Desk Service (HDS) was created as a practical support concerning animal welfare, veterinary aspects and losses/breakages of electronic identifiers. An evolution of the system to check performance of RFID technology in farms was due to the detection of bolus/transponders presence in animals body by digitalized X-ray analysis, thus allowing a sound check for operators and for reliability assessment. A very weak point was identified in a consistent loss (36.9%) of miniboluses (20 g) in goats, after 2 years from the first electronic identification. The SWOT analysis showed that the adoption of RFID technology for animal identification is a good tool for traceability of animals and improving farm management and a concrete help to solve on field problems during hard fieldwork operations.
