TRAZAR program (from traceability in English) is a very successful example of the application of ICT methods in rural areas to increase the efficiency and potentialities of small/medium-scale cattle farmers. This program took place in Santa Fe province, Argentina, between 2004 and 2006 and consisted of using ICT to track the production cycle of cow herds. TRAZAR is a software that stores all the information related to the identified animals and can be accessed and managed through the internet by its users. The project involved developing the software, promoting the system in workshops and finally applying it to the beneficiaries that auto-selected to the program.
