The expense and effort of tagging livestock, and identifying crops, fish, and other agricultural products, is wasted without a Web-based database and data management system based on site-specific locations. This allows you to link the product with ScoringAgÂs database and Site-Specific RecordkeepingÂ no matter where you are in the world Â either with RFID or barcode.
Without efficient, effective data collection system and a Web-based data management system, tagging livestock and other agriculture items cannot provide true animal traceback and traceup Â even when a local, resident software system and database is used. A Web-based system makes it possible for records to move with the individual product, which cuts the time required for source verification to just seconds.
A true traceback and traceup system also must account for every product handler that is involved in the food chain, including transport operators, vehicles, inspection stations, stockyards, and all downstream processors and food handlers to prove source verification.
Each stage of the food processing and supply system must: have items identified with a unique number and labeled by RFID or barcode; be identified by a unique Premises IDentification Code (PIDC); record activities and actions performed on the animals, fish, or crops at each location Â even in the middle of a packing plant, or on board a factory ship, or in the middle of a farmerÂs field, and all the way to the retailer and consumer.
Only ScoringAgÂs Internet-based recordkeeping system and database can: meet the demands of real traceback in real time; provide real compliance with government traceback regulations, not just an appearance of meeting tagging requirements; give producers an actual competitive marketing advantage over competitors by adding value to RFID with PIDC; and guarantee confidentiality with a secure databank that can still deliver Internet-based records anywhere, anytime, in real time Â only to the owner of the account.
If you are using tags alone Â and no Web-based recordkeeping system Â true traceback and traceup are just not possible without PIDC. http://www.ScoringAg.com has all the benefits of a filing system in a Web-based databank.
