• Automation


The Automation team develops and provides agricultural producers and various stakeholders with simple solutions to automate data gathering and sending the datas related to traceability. Composed of state-of-the-art electronic equipment and software specially designed for Quebec producers, these solutions save time and money and greatly reduce the risk of error.

To aid in the traceability of bovine, ovine and cervid animals, Agri-Traçabilité Québec suggests several tools, compatible with RFID tags, in order to make things easier for producers and other industry stakeholders.

RFID stick readers and the SimpliTRACE Express application allows the various declaration forms to be completed rapidly on SimpliTRACE. The use of these tools in the identification and traceability process will eliminate much paperwork and transcription errors.

Role of the tools

Each component of the Automated Trio plays an important role:

  • The RFID reader allows the easy reading of the animal's ear tag;
  • SimpliTRACE Express allows the transfer of animal tag numbers in your SimpliTRACE account and to make your traceability declarations in no time.
