The Silent Herdsman Remote Livestock Monitoring System

Screen Shot 2014-03-30 at 4.39.54 PM

Silent Herdsman is a monitoring system for cows and heifers based on a neck mounted tag.

Silent Herdsman continually monitors a cow’s activity and automatically detects changes in normal behaviour, indicating patterns related to parturition and oestrus.

[T]he collar triggers an alert to farmers when cows are on heat, providing farmers with advanced knowledge to activate insemination at critical times. This in turn enables them to produce more milk from the impregnated cows and increase their yields from each herd.

The Silent Herdsman triggers its alert via wireless technology to any mobile device such as a farmer’s mobile phone, tablet or laptop.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
