Helmut Ruppert, Agrident & Project Coordinator, and Brian Eadie, Roxan & Project Sponsor, were delegates at the recent UHF in Livestock conference in Dingwall.
Roxan sponsored the application for a grant to develop a ROBUST Duel-Frequency Tag & Traceability system for Sheep. A sum of just over one million Euros has been agreed by Brissels as payment to the project's chosen R&D partners. The project consortium is pan-European and includes all the disciplines needed to deliver the result.
Our Consortium visited Burnhouse Mains farm before the Dingwall conference and learned about current EID usage. Dave Scott of TagMaster, along with Allan Cutter the Farrm Manager demonstrated impressive machinery and software.
