US - The CEO of a manufacturer of livestock identification, location tracking and condition monitoring equipment announced today that sales so far in 2006 of electronic RFID (radio frequency identification) livestock tags in Canada and the U.S. are already ahead of total sales for 2005.

Digital Angel Corporation CEO Kevin McGrath says sales are expected to surpass 1.9 million tags by the end of September. This, after only nine months, is already nearly 12% higher than total 2005 sales.

The increased sales are generally due to a greater awareness of electronic tags for livestock traceability, which is fueled by the federal government-sponsored National Animal Identification System, according to McGrath.
