We are delighted to be joining our colleagues from Smartbow GmbH at EuroTier in Hannover from the 15th to 18th November on stand B54 in Hall 11.
Smartbow’s new LIFE ear tag is a winner of the 2016 EuroTier Innovation Awards. The LIFE ear tag is a new concept in identification tags for cattle. Not only can it be used for official animal identification but to also aid real-time location and health monitoring. Due to their low weight, these ear tags can be used on calves from birth, allowing data to be collected seamlessly throughout the animals’ full life cycle.
Individual animals can be located via integrated LEDs whether they are housed or at pasture. The energy supply to the sensors is sufficient to last for several years. The system saves farmers time in terms of behaviour monitoring, general animal husbandry tasks and quality assurance and therefore provides benefits across the full spectrum of production functions.
