An AGEX tag is like a fingerprint for an animal.
Every AGEX tag is unique and follows the animal across consenting owners.
AGEX tags work with any standard applicator.
AGEX tags can be read from up to 20 feet with an RFID gun, scanned with a phone using unique QR codes, or viewed like any other tag with large, 4-digit numbers.
When an AGEX animal changes hands via an transaction on the AGEX platform, all of its data transfers to the new owner (redacted to protect the prior owners' information).
As an AGEX animal continues on its journey, new events (like yield and grading) may be reported back to prior owners, helping them identify which management practices work best (pending on packers involvement with the AGEX Packer program).
