CO Woolgrowers - Open Source EID HW & SW

Postby OogieM » Sun Jul 07, 2013 7:07 am

Colorado Woolgrowers conference is coming up the 17-18th of July in Montrose.

Ken and I will be presenting a demo of our open source EID reader software and hardware on Thursday the 18th in the morning.

We built an EID reader for less than $100 and I have demo SW that is free to use and modify with plans for the expansion to include more items in the database. The demo is what we used this lambing and has my ewe lambing records. We ran a trial and will be expanding it to all of our breeding sheep now that I have inexpensive EID tags from Shearwell in the UK.

EID does not have to cost thousands of dollars to use.

If you have a need for tracking individual sheep and are interested I'll be glad to send you a copy of the presentation and the source code after the meeting. PM or e-mail direct oogiem at
