Two technologies promise to revolutionize meat and dairy farming in the coming years.
United State , A company has launched a solar powered earring sTo monitor beef cattle in real time.
The technology uses an array of satellites to track animals. Once compiled, managers can access a platform to view and manage data with reports that are updated by the system four times a day.
The earring is made of materials suitable for outdoor environments and animal care. The piece is designed to be infused into each animal for a period of three years without the need for maintenance or support of any kind. The goal is to track the animals in order to find movement patterns and to identify “hot spots” where the animals frequently go or “cold areas” that they usually avoid in grazing areas.
In the Netherlands, a company is using augmented reality on dairy farms.
Using technology and special glasses, producers can get real-time information about the herd. The equipment also allows the farmer to enter new information from his gestures or voice commands so that they can interact with the “virtual world” and get more benefits in terms of management and handling.
