Great for: Scanning cattle tag numbers and later either browsing through the tag number records on the device or downloading them to your Windows computer with a USB cable and the reader software.  The stick reader comes with a handy carry case.

Commonly used: Scan ear tags in the yards (can store 7000 tag numbers) and you can then later view the records at home to record the information in another system.  The deduplication mode setting allows you to ensure tags are only scanned once - also giving you an accurate count.

Alternate use: View the tag numbers on the screen in the yards and record or check them off manually.
  Great for: Real time transfer of scanned cattle tag numbers to your phone or tablet (Apple or Android) or computer (PC or Mac) by Bluetooth.  This SMART reader is very easy to connect to your device by Bluetooth and tag numbers appear on your screen where your cursor is as if you typed them on a keyboard. 

Commonly used: with Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, Apple Numbers & AgriWebb.  No expensive subscriptions are required - tag numbers can even just be scanned to your Apple Notes or Google Keep if you don't wish to use a spreadsheet.

Alternate use: View the tag numbers on the screen in the yards and record or check them off manually.
