Australia leads the world in identification, traceability and biosecurity, but current systems rely on:
* Old technology, including externally applied tags that can fall out, be removed or fail.
* Manual data recording is needed.
* Old databases – limited access, and not user-friendly or fit-for-purpose.
* Paper trails to determine movement history.
* Same time, and cost per head, regardless of end use, level of risk or value of animal.
