Bye-bye paper. Hello bar codes. At Feather Weight Farms, tracing chickens all the way to the consumer has never been easier or faster. The new, automated traceability system it has implemented eliminates paper and keying errors. Printed bar codes and data guns make it simple to track each batch of chickens and transfer documents down the supply chain. At the same time, they cut the cost of recording flock data. If a recall was ever required, it would take a mere three hours - a fraction of the 24 hours required by a paper-based system. For Feather Weight owner Robert Laplante, his customers, and the consumers who enjoy his chicken, the system creates peace of mind all the way through the value chain.
