Survey on electronic identification in sheep

Author: Sheepnet - Date: August 9, 2018

SheepNet is a European wide network which seeks to improve sheep productivity by establishing durable exchange of scientific and practical knowledge among farmers, researchers and advisors/consultants across Europe, as well as identifying farmers’ needs.

Efficient use of modern technology can improve labour efficiency on farm and thus productivity. SheepNet is undertaking a survey in the 7 main sheep producing countries in Europe, and Turkey, on the use of electronic identification (EID). The objective of the survey is to assess the use of EID associated technologies by sheep producers, and to understand farmers’ views on the potential benefits and barriers of using these technologies. 

We would like your opinions and experiences on the use of EID on sheep farms, and what are your expectations in terms of any future development. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete (anonymous answers). Click on the link below to access the survey:
