ATL Auto-ID System
The ATL Auto-ID system allows individual rations to be delivered and individual milk yields to be stored automatically, with just the flick of a switch. ATL have developed a range of AutoID systems for different types and sizes of milking parlours.

The system is very simple to use, and they provide an effective solution to recording and identifying animals.  The system becomes particularly effective when operated alongside the ATL Herd Management program which records herd data for analysis of your animals productivity and health.  

The systems are available in two formats, the in-stall auto-id which has an atenna at each animal standing or the other option is a walkthrough auto-id which places one or two antennas on the entrance to the parlour.

Designed for use on any size of parlour the Individual Antenna Auto ID system has an antenna at each stall which identifies the animals. 


As the animals occupy the stalls, they are identified by individual stall antennas, fed the correct ration and their milk yield is stored for future use. If any animals have any health attentions set against them, a warning sounds and you decide whether to feed or milk the animal.
