Allflex USA announced it has received USDA approval of ISO Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) livestock identification tags for use in the National Animal Identification System (NAIS).

Today, ISO RFID tags are validated as the technology of choice in the commercial market place with tens of millions of Allflex ISO RFID tags used in cattle, sheep and pigs around the world. In addition, ISO RFID tags are used as the only official identifier in National ID programs of important beef export countries like Canada and Australia.

Key groups such as the NAIS Cattle Working Group, IDairy, NCBA and USAIO advocate ISO RFID tags as the technology of choice for the U.S. national ID system. 

Both the Allflex Ultra High Performance Half Duplex and the Allflex Ultra Full Duplex tags have been validated for use in the NAIS, making Allflex the only company to offer livestock producers two RFID technologies that conform to the NAIS supplementary identifier standards.

Allflex will work with its commercial distribution partners to make the tags available as part of the USDA animal identification number (AIN) management system.
