Interactive Livestock Eartags
The Ceres Tag will be released in Queensland next May, aimed squarely at large outback cattle stations. The Ceres Tag is the world’s only direct-to-satellite smart geo-location eartag, which is effectively a unique animal monitoring sensor, GPS individual stock tracker and locator and global traceability ID tag rolled into one. Costing about $100 each it is no cheap investment, but CEO David Smith says 8000 tags have already been ordered from cattle producers in eight countries including Australia.
Some operators want the tag to reduce helicopter mustering and fuel costs on outback stations by ensuring a clean quick roundup, while other producers like the Cers Tag’s link with the E-Grazor app, offering data feedback on every animal’s pasture feeding efficiency, paddock location, daily movements and even greenhouse gas emissions.
Preventing stock theft, particularly now cattle are worth up to $2500 a head, is another bonus.
