This SMART NLIS ear tag reader comes with 12 months free access to software designed to simply record each animals full medical history. It can be used to identify poor genetics as animals can be tracked back to their dam and sire so poor performing genetics can be sold off and top performing animals retained for ongoing herd genetic improvement.

When you can track the performance of your livestock and pasture over time you can compare your performance to key industry benchmarks. This enables you to focus on areas that need improvement such as genetics, medical treatments and pasture performance.

Heather Y.

This tag reader is a compact powerhouse. It's incredibly easy to use and carry around the farm. The data syncs flawlessly with the AgriEID software, allowing us to manage our livestock data effectively and efficiently. It's a bit on the expensive side but worth the investment.

Julia S.

The reader is efficient and the size is perfect for our fieldwork. However, the software integration could be smoother. Overall, a decent product but there's room for improvement in software compatibility.

Ian M.

Reliable and easy to use. Happy with the purchase.
