In order for Farm Stock Mate to recognize the tag reader you have previously set those electronic tag numbers up within the setup of each animal. Once you have those setup, you will want to sync that information from Stock over to Stock Mate. Then you will need to establish the connection with the tag reader. Most tag readers connect via a bluetooth connection, that must be setup before opening Stock Mate. Here are the steps to setup the bluetooth connection:
Turning On the Bluetooth Wireless Connection
Tap the Bluetooth icon in the lower right-hand corner of the Today window.
Once you are in the iPAQ Wireless setup screen, tap on the Bluetooth Icon.
Setting Up the Bluetooth Wireless Connection
Tap on the Manager Button. (May say Bluetooth Manager
on some models.)
Next select the "New" button at the bottom of the
screen to create a new connection.
Scroll down and choose Explore a Bluetooth Device.
An icon for tag reader will appear with a "?" mark on it, tap on the icon, then select "com0", and then tap on "NEXT" at the bottom of the screen
Click on Finish.

Once the connection has been established open Stock Mate. Select File and then Preferences and then select the Comm. Place a check mark in the box next to Use RFID Reader. Then selct the correct tag reader, and the correct port which is normally a comm 5 or 8. and the correct baud rate (which you may have to check in the manual for the correct baud rate for this tag reader). Select OK. This should make the connection between the tag reader and Stock mate.

In Stock Mate if you are performing an action you should be able to scan the electronic tag and that animal should be displayed for you to continue with the action.

Hope this helps!

Thank You
