Heifer Calving Monitoring – Case Study

This case study will feature Smart Paddock – developers of “Bluebell” a small, lightweight, multi-sensor eartag designed to last the lifetime of the animal.
Sensors track heartrate, temperature, location, and movement to search for potential health issues. Health and location can be viewed in the web-app and mobile app, and health alerts are sent straight to the farmer’s phone.
The Smart Paddock App is also integrated with the AgriAce fence monitoring system which will also be featured.
