Fort Supply Livestock Inc started in early 2006 with the mission to develop a long range RFID tag which provides value to the producer. At the time, NAIS was forecast to require 100% mandatory compliance by 2009. As livestock producers and engineers, the founders of Fort Supply Livestock recognized that the current 134Khz ISO tag, as then mandated, had little or no value for an open range producer.

In addition to their multi-generation cow/calf producer background and their international micro electronics experience, the founders set out to create products which would help producers and livestock managers become more productive and competitive in the expanding global economy. In September of 2007, Fort Supply Livestock Inc joined with Campbell Scientific Inc, (www.campbellsci.com) a world renown data collection company, to create Fort Supply Technologies LLC, a Utah based company.

Fort Supply Technologies began shipping product in June of 2007 providing value for the current ISO compliant 134KHz tag by allowing additional information to be associated with the EID, in the field, as the animal is scanned. Since then, hundreds of users have testified to the value of FaST Products throughout the USA, Canada, Germany and Australia. Pilot projects are also schedule for 2010 for major countries in South America.

All FaST products, both software and hardware, are designed with input from leading livestock managers and are fully supported by live phone and WEB service. Our direct experience in livestock management, plus our 40 plus years of collective engineering background, give Fort Supply Technologies a unique perspective on designing, delivering and servicing complete application based products which are productive tools for our peers working with livestock.
