Slide 1

The Use of Microchipping in Cattle Production

Heather Robertson

Slide 2

What is Microchip Implant?

  • 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

Slide 3

Size

Slide 5

Where is it placed in the animal?

  • 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.

Slide 6

How it is Implanted

Slide 7

Other methods:

  • The most common method in cattle is the use of RFID ear tags.

Slide 8

The different types of tags:

  • 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.

Slide 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
