Archer 2 Uses

With a portable electronic management system, you can now take the power of electronic management in the field to effectively manage and document events. Monitor breeding groups in large pastures from horseback, ATV or pickup with the same system that you Age & Source your calves with; record pregnancy test information and vaccination records and monitor saddle horse body temperature and identification.

Feedlot: Take advantage of electronic identification for management of incoming and outgoing livestock. Scan animals off the truck or place an electronic ear tag in each animal at processing and witness how easy it can be to manage all sizes of grouped animals.


Veterinarian inspections: Disease testing is becoming more prevalent and the USDA has provided specific disease software programs for testing livestock. However, these programs have restricted use which limits the potential for electronic management outside of disease testing.


Dairy Ranch: Managing animals from multiple birth locations, keeping records on vaccinations or treatments applied at your facility, keeping track of movements in and out of your location, tracking paper slips around the office can all be a daunting task! Put your fears of electronic management to rest and start managing these calves on a reliable and accurate electronic management system.


Equipment Monitoring: By using an electronic marker, be it a passive EID tag, or a bar code number, you can easily track all information regarding any piece of equipment; from when it last went through maintenance to who checked on it last or any current work orders for that piece of machinery.


Auction Check-in: Having a mobile device to check in the auction animals provides real time identification and documentation as fast as the animals arrive. Additionally the brand inspection can be accurately completed with ease. these check can then be wirelessly transmitted through out the auction yard to the office, while the inspections can be submitted to the state.



As spring came the unit was put to work one day during a snowstorm scanning calves as we were working them. The unit was sitting in a ½ inch of water and never quit working the whole time we worked those calves. The screen would get covered with snow and I just wiped it off and continued with my data entry….”

The FaST EID system worked very well as I was able to scan the tags and print a label out (actually 2 labels) before the carcass got to the station where the carcass tags were put on. I was actually able to get within 2 head on the label station and still do everything that was necessary and get the labels printed in time for them to be placed on the carcasses. This was done at a chain speed of 420 head per hour. It took us less than 10 minutes to do the 60 head of stock show animals….”

The main things that I work with are those EID tags, electronic tags. In the 6,000 head that I’ve worked with, I have yet to lose an EID tag if it’s placed correctly, placed at the base of the ear. So because of that it’s more reliable than a bangs tag, that’s much more reliable than a drop down floppy tag, and it’s much more reliable than a managers…knowledge of the herd. So that EID tag becomes the basis of identifying everything that we’re doing. So without the Archer and without the readers; I mean to be able to connect that EID number with that calf visual ID number, with that sample, with that mother, with that father, it just, I mean the EID is the basis of everything. I don’t have anything that I know that can collect the EID and connect it with the samples in the same way…”

I don`t have to use my old dead calves book anymore for record keeping. With ARCHER and FaST EID, I can keep all my data together. Inventory? The excel mobile contained in the ARCHER allows you to do anything you want. Connectivity? Build in Bluetooth connection makes your work comfortable without wires bugging you, just one tap and your scanner is connected ready to work in a free way…”
