Digital Angel Corporation through its subsidiary, Destron Fearing, has become the exclusive provider of identification microchips and readers for The Brazilian Association of Breeders and Owners of Race Horses.
The Brazilian Association placed its first order for five thousand Destron Fearing Lifechip identification tags and five DTR readers. A number of horses recently tagged by The Brazilian Association will be exported to South Africa, where identification through Lifechip complies with that country’s import requirements.
The Brazilian Association is a non-profit agency of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. It is in charge of administering the Brazilian Stud Book, which is responsible for the genealogical control of English thoroughbred horses across Brazil.
