RFID tags and Bessie…

December 31, 2003

In the wake of all this mad-cow craziness (hey, good time to be a vegetarian), cows will be getting RFID-tagged for new tracking systems in those beef-producing nations that have been slow to introduce a system, the US being one of them. According to a ComputerWorld article, Allflex USA Inc. and Digital Angel Corp. in the U.S. and Aleis International Pty. Ltd. in Australia have the inside track on providing the tags and readers to major beef-producing nations that have instituted national electronic livestock ID systems. Beef, books, it’s all the same, right?

“RFID tags and Bessie…”

    Does that mean libraries wanting to put RFID tags on their books will have to wait? Cows or Books? Books or Cows?

  2. Librarian in Black Says:

    I’m sure the industry will have plenty of RFID tags to go ’round. Things seem to work that way when there is money to be made.
