The Sheep CRC said electronic identification (eID) and data collection is gaining momentum in the sheep industry as producers look to efficiently capture and use individual animal information.
Individual animal performance data can be used to fine tune management, select replacement breeders and target specific meat and wool markets. There is also the opportunity to reduce labour demands by combining eID technology with the latest sheep handling equipment, the CRC said.
The Sheep CRC workshops help producers develop a plan for eID and data collection that will improve flock and business performance as well as take the “hard yakka” out of sheep operations.
