    TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - Sirit Inc. ("Sirit") (TSX: SI), a global provider
of radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology, today announced its

a global integrator of track, trace and monitoring solutions to the livestock

    eriginate's eTattoo(TM) system is one of the first commercially available
UHF cattle solutions, incorporating a customized Sirit UHF inlay embedded into
a livestock ear tag and Sirit's IDentity(TM) 5100 reader. The system,
developed with livestock owners, was designed specifically to meet the rugged
demands associated with the beef and dairy industries.
    The eTattoo solution offers a number of benefits over traditional
tracking systems: tags provide both a visual and electronic identification in
a single tag; read ranges can be focused or adjusted between 2 and 50 feet;
and, tags can be read from either the front or back of an animal. In addition,
multiple tags can be read simultaneously without system lockups and many of
the delays associated with low frequency systems.
    "A key component of the eriginate system is the fact that little or no
infrastructure changes are required for installation," said Doran Junek, CEO
of eriginate. "This, along with the variable read ranges, enables the Sirit
and eriginate system to very quickly and easily solve challenges that the
livestock market has struggled with historically."
    "Food safety in the supply chain is an important initiative," stated
Norbert Dawalibi, CEO for Sirit. "Sirit is excited to have its inlays and
readers form part of this unique solution which helps ensure safer products
for consumers as well as assists producers and processers improve their
operational efficiencies."

the eTattoo ear tag and the IDentity 5100 reader system for the last 18 months
and systems are currently being implemented in the United States, Brazil and
Taiwan. The eTattoo system and Sirit components are available for immediate
