Digital Angel's Destron Fearing Unit Chosen as Exclusive Manufacturer of Visual and Electronic Tags for the American Angus Association's[R] AngusSource[R] Program.
Destron Fearing will manufacture AngusSource and Gateway program-compliant tags, offering producers a shorter turnaround time on tag orders, increased customization capabilities and a new radio frequency identification (RFID) option. Previously, the only program-compliant tag offered by AngusSource and Gateway was a visual tag.
"Quicker delivery, the ability to customize the back of the tag, and an RFID program-compliant tag - these are things our customers have been asking for," commented Sara Snider, AngusSource director. "Through our partnership with Destron, we are able to meet their demands. Destron has an outstanding reputation in the industry for producing high-quality identification devices with good retention," Snider continued. "We continually look for ways to improve AngusSource and Gateway and increase the services we provide to our customers. Destron shares that commitment to customer service and to providing cattlemen with tools they can use to improve their operations."
"We look forward to the opportunity to enhance the service and turnaround time for the American Angus Association and its customers in the delivery of high-quality, innovative cattle identification products," commented Joseph J. Grillo, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Angel. As Destron Fearing expects to ship tags within one day of receiving orders, Grillo added, "We are committed to the new partnership and the quick delivery of these products for the needs of Angus producers and we appreciate their commitment to high-quality beef products."
