Enhanced Quality Control

By accessing real-time data on the health and location of the cattle, processors can make more informed decisions about which animals are suitable for processing. This helps maintain consistency and quality in the final meat products.

Optimized Processing Efficiency

With precise data on each animal's health status, processors can prioritize the processing of healthier animals, potentially reducing processing time and minimizing the risk of contamination or spoilage.

Compliance with Regulations

Utilizing MicroTraks technology allows processors to demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements regarding animal welfare, traceability, and food safety standards. This can help streamline audits and inspections.

Improved Traceability

MicroTraks chips allow processors to trace each animal back to its origin farm. This traceability ensures accountability throughout the entire supply chain, enhancing food safety and quality control measures

Efficient Inventory Management

MicroTraks technology provides processors with accurate information on the quantity and condition of incoming cattle batches. This facilitates better planning of production schedules and reduces the risk of overstocking or shortages.
