Measuring the temperature of livestock to alert up to 48 hours early of potential disease or infection to an animal. Adding an internal identification ID to an animal for tracking and alerting of movement and a non-removable asset tag.
Using a bolus device with a temperature sensor, accelerometer and radio transmitter we are able to record the internal (true) temperature of the animal and transmit that data in 15 min periods (this can be adjusted) for monitoring and early alerting.
Quick reaction to animal illness can be the difference between one animal verses an entire herd being infected. There is ever increasing demand to reduce the reliance on antibiotics in meat and dairy product production and by early identification animals can be isolated and treated separately to the whole herd.
The Net4 bolus provide cattle owners with evidence of wellbeing in 15 minute slots as though a Vet has taken the temperature of every animal.
The solution upskills the labour force to be able to identify illness and to react quickly to take action. The internal device also acts as a tracking ID that can be scanned and located when in beacon mode allowing quick retrieval of at risk animals.
The bolus transmits to a local gateway which can be setup as a zone so cattle can be identified as being present at a set location and recorded automatically moving between zone locations. Zone location mobile gateways can also be provided to allow real time monitoring for animals in transport to monitor for increase temperature leading to pneumonia and to record all the assets being present during the journey.
