Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I identify my cattle?
The lifetime identification of your cattle protects
your valuable asset from theft, and enables disease
control and temperature monitoring. It also makes it
possible for your cattle to be tracked and recovered if
rustled or lost and returned back to you.
Why should I consider the recticum
bolus against the skin injected device
for my cattle?
The Bolus is a special ceramic capsule that is resistant
to stomach acids and contains a battery-free RFID
transponder. It is safely inserted in the recticum of
the animal, where it can’t be reached or removed
by rustlers, and causes no discomfort to the animal.
It has no effect on animal meat and the process is
recommended, certified, and approved by the United
States Food & Drugs Administration (FDA), European
Union (EU), International Meat market, International
Committee for Animal Recording (ICAR), etc., to be
safe and used on farm or consumable animals.
Skin injected device is made of glass and the
injection process with the possibility of the device
breaking, may cause injury to the animal. The device
utilizes skin electrodes to establish communication;
whereby, upon recognizing a foreign implant, the
animal body mounts a complex response on both
short and long term scales that may adversely affect
function of the device and more importantly, health
of the animal tissue.
Large scale tests demonstrated that only about 80%
of skin injected transponders were recovered, and
only 52% of these were successfully read after recovery,
as the extraction process (with glass breaking),
influences readability. Post slaughter recovery of
injected transponders is problematic and as a result,
due to potential risks of transponders entering the
food chain, the process is not recommended or
approved by the FDA, ICAR, EU, International Meat
market, etc., to be used on farm animals.
