Here is presented a survey of the most common cattle identification methods comparing advantages, disadvantages and costs in the utilization of a new Identification model that uses tags with Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFID). From there, a RFID system of evaluation is proposed for management automated. When the herd pass through a monitored portal, it can be obtained the immediate identification of each animal. Three tests were performed to verify the better position of the RFID reader in order to determine a setting for it and verify that the settings selected for the assembly of the system remains adequate. The use of this system gives the producer an electronic identification,  facilitating the management, identification and control of the herd.
