ICAR's Annual General Meeting and workshop were held in Aarhus (Denmark) on 29-31 May 2013. Every year, the event brings together decision-makers from the public and private sectors committed to improving livestock techniques.

Attending for the third time, ARaymondlife presented products from its RayTrace line designed for animal identification and, in particular, its flagship product: leg bands for goats.

The band, which is compliant with European regulations and approved by the French Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Town and Country Planning (MEEDDAT), can be fitted as soon as the animal is born, and adjusts as it grows thanks to its notch system. This innovative concept allows the band to rotate around the leg without harming the animal.

Another innovation presented at the ICAR workshop was the flexible electronic clip tag developed by ARaymondlife. This tag has a longer shaft and a T-bar shaped point, making piercing the ear easier and reducing the risk of infection. It can be fitted using the standard tagging pliers widely available in the market.

The RayTrace line also includes cattle ear tags. These are the only tags on the French market with a rigid plastic piercing point and shaped to suit the ear, making them easier to fit.

ARaymondlife's animal identification products come in two versions: standard or electronic (FDX and HDX).
