EZ Link

EZ Link is a barcode scanner that is designed to make herd testing easier -  taking away the need to hand-write a cow’s tag number on the side of a herd testing flask. 

You can use the EZ Link handheld device by itself, or as an optional extra, pair it with a bluetooth wand called the EZ Link electronic identification device (EID).

How EZ Link Works

Herd Testing with EZ Link means you’ll never need a pen during herd testing again. Each flask is identified by a barcode. Instead of writing the number on the side of the flask you:

  1. Enter the cow number into the handheld device.
  2. Scan that cow’s flask.

It’s that simple.

For your convenience, we provide all flasks with barcodes pre-attached. The flask can then be placed anywhere in a standard tray, there is no need to use a numbered tray card. EZ Link will also identify duplicates during milking so they can be resolved quickly.

EZ Link - EID Wand

EZ Link now has an upgrade to version 3.   EZ Link 3 is a handheld scanning unit run on an Android Operating system.  EZ Link 3 will be released in regional stages over the 2017/18 season. The North Island will receive it early/mid-season, followed by South Island mid/late season.

Additional features of EZ Link 3 include:

  • An inbuilt feedback and test card
  • The ability to add abnormal codes throughout the test
  • The ability to flag animals that need to be looked at e.g. missing tag number
  • An enhanced user interface.

EZ Link EID Wand

EZ Link EID is an additional, optional extra to EZ Link. An EID wand is connected via bluetooth. This allows the user to scan the animals EID tags, which are then automatically transmitted to the EZ Link device - removing the need for you and your staff to enter cow numbers on the EZ Link handheld scanner while in the shed.
