EID Systems

Electronic tags can be used with readers and recording systems to help with statutory and management data collection and analysis. This provides a fast and accurate method for obtaining the data and minimising stress to both the animal and the operator.

Bringing it all together   -  the Shearwell EID System 

Shearwell can provide a complete EID system – cattle and sheep EID tags, stick readers, stock recorders, race readers, mobile phone apps, sheep handling crates and farm management software. This equipment and software (FarmWorks by SDL) can help to identify productive and non-productive animals and assist in statutory recording. EID weighing and drafting crates can be used with the readers for fast, accurate and hands-free data collection.

The Shearwell EID System

Tagging your animals with electronic ear tags opens the doors to a system where information on your animals – your information – is available when and where you want it of you to make better-informed and more profitable decisions.


Stock Recorder

Recommended for its speed and accuracy in recording livestock data. With its built-in EID tag reader, you can record breeding, births, weights, treatments, movements and much more.

Stick Reader

One person with the Shearwell Stick Reader can quickly and accurately identify the electronic IDs of all your livestock.

Sheep Management Crate

Trials have shown that in one hour over 400 more sheep can be weighed and recorded using an electronic weigh crate fitted with a static reader than can be read and recorded manually.

Save time and effort when drafting your livestock and get it all right first time. Decide how you want to draft out your animals – weight, gender, breed, health problems, management group etc.
