Abstract: Individual animal identification is a key feature of the operational aspects of recording, selection and mate allocation in ram breeding enterprises. All breeders identify some portion of their flocks individually using traditional "visual" ear tags. Enhanced recording systems combine electronic tags (E-ID), reliable and easy to use data capture and database management. Such systems have the potential to substantially increase the efficiency of recording programs. Efficiency will be increased by faster and more accurate data capture, and easier access to the information collected, Flowing on from these management benefits, it will be possible to provide better information on the genetic merit of animals, including information on traits not currently available, such as lifetime production.
