The Internet of Cows
Agriculture is a global industry but one that is highly fragmented, with many small farms. The estimated one billion cows worldwide are a particularly high-value item of livestock, and in developed countries farmers need to minimize the labour costs involved in watching them, which is particularly critical at times such as oestrus and calving, when ideally they need full-time monitoring.
This Research Note presents details of three companies that are connecting cows to the Internet of Things in order to alert farmers to take action that will increase profitability.
More discussion of IoT in agriculture can be found in the associated Application Spotlight on Land Agriculture.
