The necessity to use innovative record keeping tools for reindeer husbandry is increasing among reindeer herders of Yamal. Thus, the head of the reindeer-herding farm Boris Tesida from Tazovskiy district asked the Union of reindeer herders of Yamal to find them for his farm.
According to the information given by the executive director of the Union Timur Akchurin to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press”, there are commercial offers describing the given innovative product. He explains that today’s “plastic” tagging of reindeer with a tag on the ear is not quite convenient, but gives data about a reindeer and an owner to the general database, being large, but non-exhaustive.
Now majority of reindeer herders in Yamal put up with this order of things, but there are also those people, who think about new achievements of civilization and consider plastic tags as a thing of the past. For example, there is a practice in the world, at which the entire information about a deer is transmitted to the database, when it just passes through the frame of the corral. The Union of reindeer herders of Yamal is ready to help in search for best practices in the North.
“I believe that development of the innovative system of reindeer record keeping will give an impulse to development of animals insurance, will attract additional financial resources and allow using budgetary funds more rationally”, Timur Akchurin said.
