Livestock monitoring solutions use wearable devices such as electronic bands with the capability to stream data to the cloud to help farmers make better decisions by giving them access to more information about the health, status, and location of livestock. Wearables are mounted on the animal and monitor indicators such as heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, digestion level, and other vitals that indicate health levels. State-of-the art systems monitor eating, rumination and inactive behavior. They can detect signs of diseases like ketosis, subclinical mastitis and pneumonia days before their symptoms are visible to the human eye. This allows you to save time and money by catching and treating a sick animal before she needs medical treatment, shows a drop in milk production or needs to be culled. In addition to health, these sensors can also be used for tracking location of liverstock, monitoring reproductive cycles, and maximizing livestock livelihood.
