ScoringAg's Web-based Livestock Databank Gives Animal Traceback in Just Seconds

Just entering an animal's ear tag number into ScoringAg's Web-based databank can give immediate access to public source data for the animal in real time.

(PRWEB) October 22, 2005 -- With the Public Records "Search" function found on the Home page, reading (RFID tag), scanning (barcode tag), or entering (manually) the animal's ear tag number into the search page's entry block gives the user access to the public information for the animal: such as, breed, other ID tag data, name, date of birth, sex, brand, tattoo, color, and dam / sire names.

In addition, the animal's traceback history from origin to the present is displayed by unique premises ID (PIDC), activity name, and activity date / time. The expanded details of the animal's history are accessible only by the animal and Web page owner, available only by entering the owner's login and password.

The public information page for the animal can be found with ScoringAg's search function in two other ways: by entering the unique ScoringAg number for the animal (SSI-EID); and by entering the premises ID (PIDC) for the location where the animal is found.

For an example of how quickly and easily ScoringAg's instant public access system works, go to the Home page and enter the following numbers in the appropriate blocks in the "Search" drop-down menu:

RFID 804000000045821

SSI-EID 030053744

PIDC 011M13N47222310MW0874409+000

Instead of waiting for hours or days, ScoringAg system is able to deliver this level of public information in a matter of seconds -- like no other system. The Public Records pages also show a photo of the animal, giving an additional means of animal ID when ear tags are lost or stolen, and only unique identifying characteristics can give positive ID for the animal.

Earlier this year, at the ID INFO EXPO 2005 held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Chicago-O'Hare, September 26–29, 2005, ScoringSystem demonstrated this unique feature of ScoringAg's Web-based agriculture databank, showing booth visitors how Public Records could be accessed instantly by scanning RFID ear tags into the "Public Search" function. Using RFID readers, such as the Idology wireless LightningROD Reader and AVID's PowerTracker V, field data was collected by reading RIFD ear tag numbers. Then, by transferring the data to the ScoringAg Public Search via Bluetooth or RS-232, the animal's public source data was available immediately, in real time, as it is retrieved on-line from ScoringAg's Web-based databank.

Another exclusive feature of ScoringAg's Web-based system is animal and location premises ID data entry using 2D DataMatrix barcode labels and the Nokia 6610 cell phone with Semacode programming. This unique cell phone application allows users to access ScoringAg Web pages by scanning DataMatrix barcoded labels in the field using 2D DataMatrix labels for a variety of product and location identification labeling. and its traceback and traceup system for agriculture products, featuring Site-Specific Recordkeeping™ and PIDC location code, is one of the many divisions of ScoringSystem, Inc. Located in Sarasota, Florida USA , the company specializes in providing solutions with mobile data, via wireless PDAs, laptops, and Semacode-programmed Nokia, Siemens, and Sony Ericsson cell phones. Whether using RFID or barcodes for traceup and traceback of livestock, from birth through the packing plants and on to the consumer; or tracking transport containers or perishable meats and other food consumer goods, makes managing data easier -- and does it in an extremely cost effective manner from "Field-to-Fork."
