We’re delighted Ceres Tag is one of the winners of the ANZCham Business Excellence Awards.
Globalstar, Inc. a leading provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, today announced its partnership with Ceres Tag, a leader in livestock information systems using a proprietary smart ear tag, to conduct its final stages of commercial large-scale trials for the provenance and management of livestock. These trials will be a significant scale extension of previous trials performed by Ceres Tag on 100 animals in North Queensland, Australia in early 2019.
“After partnering with Ceres Tag and CSIRO, we’ve been able to collaboratively produce an exciting and extremely small design using our Commercial IoT technology,” said David Kagan, CEO of Globalstar, Inc. “With no other infrastructure necessary on a ranch, this simple attach-and-go ear tag significantly reduces any installation headaches and provides great value to livestock farmers.”marketwatch.com
Ceres Tag has been included in a recent round of grants to promote Australian innovation.
Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said seven businesses will share in $2.8 million in the latest round of Accelerating Commercialisation grants.
Ceres Tag will be receiving $700,000 in funding to to commercialise smart ear tag technology to provide whole-of-life traceability of livestock.

The GPS and Bluetooth-enabled e-tags, which form part of a complete livestock information platform, rely on low-earth orbit satellites to allow farmers access to real-time information about the location, welfare, and behaviour of individual animals remotely, and detect the condition of the paddocks their cattle are grazing on.

Smart ear tag for cattle set to revolutionise industry
A new digital ear tag developed with support from the State Government could revolutionise Australia’s $17 billion cattle industry and create jobs in Queensland.
“Aussie farmers need every bit of help they can get right now so we are pleased we have been able to move from the research phase into development,”
Mirage news have covered Ceres Tag this week with their article ‘Smart ear tag for cattle set to revolutionise industry‘
“With this new technology, graziers will know if their cattle are sick, if they have roamed too far and the condition of the paddocks their cattle are grazing on.
“This technology could have a huge impact on our Queensland graziers and further grow the premium status of Australian livestock products – a vital component of the Australian economy.”

It’s been called the ‘Fitbit’ for cows – a digital ear tag that tracks the health of cattle amid hopes it will revolutionise Australia’s $17 billion livestock industry.
The long-life digital tag uses GPS to track individual cattle and send the animal’s health, temperature, pulse rate and feeding data directly to a smartphone or computer.
The ear tag is expected to hit the market in 2020 after a successful trial with a grazier in Townsville and James Cook University, Ceres Tag and CSIRO.
