Livestock Ordering Point Software
Maintain order and traceability at Livestock Ordering Point
Within our cattle kill line software, the Livestock Ordering Point ensures that animals are introduced to the slaughter process in the correct order. At the station, for traceability, a unique kill number is created for each animal. This unique kill number is passed to all subsequent stations down the line.
The Livestock ordering point application usually runs on one of our own touchscreens, which has been specifically designed to be located in environments not suited to standard office-based computers.
Here’s how it works:
- Animals are viewed on the screen, as a whole batch; or touchscreens can be configured to show only the next animal in the lot.
- Providing animal have not reached any of the stations further down the line they can be backed out allowing mistakes to be easily corrected.
- The ear tag information is checked against data on the touchscreen, and the passport is either scanned or selected.
- The ear-tag search facility can also be used to find specific ear-tags when there are many in a lot. This helps to avoid misselection, reducing errors that often show up later in the process, and saving time in rectifying misidentifications.
Livestock Sampling Station
Record sample numbers, produce pot labels and data with our livestock sampling station software and touchscreen.
Within the kill line software, the livestock sampling station is used to record sample numbers, produce pot labels and the data needed to be transferred to the laboratory. Data is fed to this station from the Ordering Point so that the animals show up in the correct order.
At the livestock sampling station, screens can be configured to show only the next animal to be sampled. Further to this it can show those which have been ordered.
The application’s simple to use and runs on one of our touchscreens- no mouse or keyboard is required. The number of labels printed can be set by the operator. The ability to reprint labels involves touching the ear tag number for any that are already selected and sampled.
