Cedar Creek Company’s proprietary bodyTRACE is an essential component in providing traceability from live animal to carcase to carton.
How it works
The system scans and records each animal eID at the knocking box, correlates with the body NLIS number and the correct PIC on the kill agenda, then matches each carcase with a unique hook embedded with an RFID tag.
Both hook and body travel through the whole production facility together – through the kill floor, chillers, boning room or via carcase loadout. Scanners in key locations allowing the collation of key data for each animal. This allows for improved pre-slaughter management and production decisions as detailed information per carcase is available in real time.
|Individual carcase correlation opens the door to value-add solutions such as:|
|automated chiller marshalling|
|automated animal health recording|
|un-staffed grading and assessment stations|
|removal of tickets|
|detailed inventory and product status control|
|web-feedback to buyers and producers to help improve growing|
