Slide1: 

Wisconsin Pork Association Swine EID Pilot Project Host Farm cooperators; Mike and Judy Salter Presentation by Dan Short, UW Extension Swine Specialist

Slide2: 

Project Overview: Was to determine the effectiveness of current electronic identification technologies in swine breeding herd operations and examine strategies for incorporating EID results with herd management information utilizing available computer software.

Slide3: 

Swine EID Pilot Project Sponsors and Cooperators: WPA and Host Farm Mike and Judy Salter Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium Digital Angel Corporation, Minnesota University of Wisconsin Extension

Slide4: 

Why invest funds/effort in a EID project? * Safe Guard Wisconsin Livestock Industries a. Proactive, anticipatory of NAIS b. Consumer confidence c. Protect livestock industries from economic losses d. Disease monitoring e. Enhance potential efficiencies in Swine Production

Slide5: 

National Animal Identification Plan NAIS will develop the standards and framework Develop plans for phasing in ID of individual animals Goal, 'to develop a 48 hr. trace back/forward system'

Slide6: 

National Animal ID System Components Premises Animal ID Animal Tracking

Slide7: 

Wisconsin Act 229 - Requires Premises Registration States that anyone who keeps, houses, co-mingles livestock is required to register that premises by Nov 1, 2005.

Slide8: 

Premises Registration - Is free - Convenient to do - Information is confidential - No future obligations to NAIS

WPA EID Project: 

WPA EID Project Examine currently available EID equipment Study implementation issues Suggest alterations to current equipment and software Assess information integration potential to assist with herd management

Project Results : 

Project Results Tags Equipment Data collection Information Transfer Application towards herd Mgt.

EID Tags: 

EID Tags Retention/Tagging/Duplicate ID Readability Cold weather use issue Ear location and tag orientation Infections Tag packaging – No specific order

Project Equipment - Readers: 

Project Equipment - Readers Hand held reader effectiveness Wireless reader vs. Corded Recorded duplicates No counter Tags from other vendors

Project Equipment - Other: 

Project Equipment - Other Reader and collection device interface Multiple readings for same event No counter on equipment Transfer of data challenging Unnecessary repetitive screens

Data Collection, Transfer & Use: 

Data Collection, Transfer andamp; Use Improved over the course of the study Early software did not integrate well Software provided more advanced than producer felt necessary Retagging sows with new ID Issue Information showing up that was never collected after transfer Producers looking to collect useful production/ mgt. information

Summary: 

Summary Software, equipment reliability and info transfer improved over course of project Producer costs (time, tags, equip.) continued to be an issue Producers looking for production and management information

Ancillary Information: 

Ancillary Information WPA Cooperated with a marketing agency to evaluate the feasibility to utilize current EID technology to collect multiple species info.
