What is it?
The Flokk Handheld is our solution for traceability and record keeping for Canadian livestock producers. It is a rugged device capable of operating in adverse conditions. It does not need WiFi or cellular connection to work, so you can bring it absolutely anywhere and it will keep up just fine.
It’s compact single hand size makes it easy to use while you’re hard at work. It will fit in a jacket pocket or in your tagging box.
What can it do?
The Flokk Handheld’s RFID tag reader works with the CCIA RFID tags you already buy and apply today. No special tag is required. It is your herdside companion and is meant to be a dedicated record keeper to assist with vaccinations, weaning, and preg checks.
How does it work?
The Flokk Handheld uses a simple micro-computer loaded with custom software written but us. The head of the device is equipped with an RFID tag reader which feeds data into the micro-computer. Its design is resilient to sudden power outages, so should something unexpected happen your data will still be safe.
Once charging and in WiFi range, the Flokk Handheld will attempt to connect to our secure servers so it can automatically backup your data. This makes it easy to manage your information through our web portal and make regulatory report submissions as needed.
We have developed the prototype, iterated on it, brought it into the field for testing, and are working on a production ready model for release in 2024.
