PPCS Says radio id ready when farmers are

02-11-2007 | webmaster

The largest venison processor, co-op PPCS says it will be ready to cater for on-farm electronic animal identification systems as soon as farmers give the nod.

CEO Keith Cooper explains that the company has been developing radio ID systems within its plants to achieve efficiencies and achieve best practice. It is installed in one plant and is now being rolled out to other plants.

He says the focus is currently cattle and deer because they're already tagged as part of the bovine Tb control programme and this can then be connected with the in-plant system.

Cooper says any farming livestock sector that develops a radio ID system will be able to tack it on to the pre-slaughter board system in the plant.
