Abstract: In the context of the occurrence of infectious diseases in livestock and the increasing demand for animal products in the Asian region, it is necessary to establish information management systems for animal production and prevention of epidemics. In this study, we propose a next-generation information management system of animal production that utilizes information and communication technology such as RFID, cloud systems, and mobile communication network. Also, we conducted operational test of the information system by using goat as a model for the target animal in order to evaluate the requirements for the dissemination of the system and the remaining issues.
Keywords: Animal production, RFID, Cloud system, Goat, ICT.
