Special ink to mark livestock is in trial stage

The radio-frequency identification product Mays and Pydynowski hope to bring to market will allow producers of cattle, sheep, goats, hogs and other hair-bearing livestock (but not poultry) to mark, identify and track their animals with an ink tattoo.

It's a form of nanotechnology, using the molecular structure of an ink approved by the Food and Drug Administration to identify livestock.
