In the last years it has increased the concern with sanitary questions and quality of the production in the bovine meat productive chain, mainly in the productive path and in the industry. Questions as traceability and property and production certification have made with that cattlemen search different forms of flock’s identification and registration. In this aspect the radiofrequency electronic animals identification (RFID) has detached as soon as the technology advances and the price starts to reduce. We can detach the use of this system in the production data management, creating trustworthy and safe data with agility, in the reduction of costs with man power, in the information’s transmission between rural properties and/or industry. Some difficulties still need to be transposed, as reading pitch and implantation costs. Studies need to be made in this area, developing new applications for the RFID.
