One person with the Shearwell Stick Reader can quickly and accurately identify the electronic IDs of your livestock.
In a pen, in a race or out in the field, simply point, scan, record and store the data – up to 16,000 animals and up to 26 management groups.
The Stick Reader is rugged, and built for a hard day’s work out on the farm. It has easy, single-button operation and a large display. And when you’re done, just transfer the data wirelessly over to your office computer or even to your mobile.
What's included with every Stick Reader:
• Shearwell Stick Reader (SDL400S or SDL440S)
• 4 x AA rechargeable battery pack
• AA battery charger
• 240V adaptor cable for charger
• 12V adaptor cable for charger
• PC software on CD & downloadable Mac version

Bluetooth USB adapter for use with Shearwell Stick Reader
Data can be read from Shearwell Stick Reader over a Bluetooth wireless connection. Many laptops have Bluetooth built in, but for those that don't and for most desktop PCs an adaptor can be plugged into a USB socket on the PC to enable Bluetooth on the computer.
Many Bluetooth adaptors will work with our Stick Reader but if you'd like one that has worked well for us, this is a good one to choose.
This dongle works with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. If you have a different Windows operating system or need advice please don't hesitate to contact us.
The mobile printer can be used to provide a list of tag numbers easily and quickly. This is especially useful for those who do not wish to use a PC or are away from the farm office. The printer can also be used with the Handheld Stock Recorder to print off lists of tag numbers for movements and groups.
The printer is lightweight (160g with one paper roll), has a rechargeable battery and uses 58mm Direct Thermal paper.
