Individual identification in pigs is a key point for management, traceability and trade control. The aim of this experiment was to study retention rate and functionality of electronic identification systems in pigs, injected in different sites, to evaluate traceability of animals and highlight histopathological alterations of tissues in different inoculation sites.

 

In this experiment, injectable transponders in the intraperitoneal position provided the best identification system for pigs. Histopathological examination revealed only local reparative processes in the tissues interested by PIT contact, and no other pathological changes.
