HR5 Hand Held EID Tag Reader & Data Collector


Flexible and editable data recording and EID scanning. The HR5 Hand Held EID Tag Reader is the most powerful portable data collection and editing platform available, providing flexible data recording right there in the yard. Farmers can record, edit and customise data against EID records immediately without needing to pre-define or set up a session in the office first. 


A large colour screen and alpha numeric keypad makes it easy to collect high value data, not just EID numbers. Choose up to 9 traits to record against each animal such as sex, condition score, pregnancy status and more, linking that data to the EID tag number. Bluetooth connectivity allows you connect EID tags with animal weights via a connected weigh scale, or wirelessly send and receive EID data and draft list with your Animal Performance mobile app.
