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.
