Livestock management is a complex, around-the-clock job, but no rancher can be everywhere at once—until now.When it comes to containing livestock and warding off predators, fencing helps ease the burden of manpower and reduce animal loss, but this is not always an ideal—or feasible—solution. Fencing large areas is expensive, and in the case of steep summer pastures or the open range, simply impossible. Even when fencing is an option, animals still run the risk of escaping through damaged sections, or worse, falling prey to rustlers and thieves.
For the first time, ranchers have a complete view of their herds—anytime, anywhere. Representing the latest in IoT innovation, smart livestock GPS system give ranchers the ability to virtually fence and track animals via solar powered GPS tracker, as well as gather crucial information to better manage the health and safety of their herds.
HengJi KeDa intelligent grazing system uses GPS satellite positioning technology and relies on mobile networks to enable herders to monitor grassland dynamics, herd position information, and livestock physiology at any time through smart phones or computers,intelligent identification, positioning, tracking, alarming, monitoring and management of pastures and herds. The intelligent grazing system realizes refined, virtualized, remote, and automated grazing management, which effectively reduces energy consumption, costs and labor intensity. For example, the system can perform GPS positioning on animal groups such as cattle, sheep, horses, etc. at regular intervals, upload information through GRPS traffic or text messages, and report their locations. Electronic fences can be implemented to define the cattle, sheep, horses, and herds. If it is abnormal or exceeds the range of grazing, the system will give an alarm in time. The system can record and store information such as the moving speed, latitude and longitude of the herds in real time, and realize the intelligent grazing and scientific grazing of herders.
The use of solar powered GPS tracker also implies indirect financial benefits for farmers, especially in cattle holdings, tracking the movement of the animals in the countryside (free range for approximately 6 months) helps to save sick-trapped animals and minimizing the cost from animal losses.
