Tru-Test ERS EID Handheld Reader for reading NAIT tags.

Eliminate the hassle of manually reading and recording tags on lively stock. EID’s can be quickly recorded by waving the reader past the animal’s ear. Easily download tag information by connecting the reader to your computer.

Pairing with a weigh scale indicator enables you to monitor individual animal performance by recording weights and other information against an animal’s EID tag. By doing this you can accurately identify poor performers, catch health issues early or split animals into groups.

The ERS EID Handheld Reader case is water and dust proof and designed for use in the tough agricultural environment.
