Visionist Consulting

With an IoT cattle tracking collar, you’ll be able to gain remote visibility on the location of your livestock. The GPS cattle collar sends out a signal every 15 minutes, straight to your livestock management dashboard. This means that you can remotely monitor the location of your cattle at any time, from anywhere. You can also set up specific geofences and alerts to notify you if your livestock moves out of a designated area.

Our IoT cattle collar tracks and monitors the location of every individual in the herd. This enables you to:

  • Prevent livestock theft

  • Track and recover stolen animals

  • Count stock within a matter of minutes

  • Identify individual animals with ease

  • Detect unusual behaviour

  • Save time by accessing location information in the palm of your hand

  • GeoFence to prevent animals from straying out of the designated grazing area

  • Gain complete visibility of your cattle’s location at all times

How does GPS cattle tracking work?

Connected to our privately-owned Orion Data Network, our livestock tracking collars provide real-time data analytics on individual animals, giving you accurate visibility into the location of individual animals, allowing you to quickly identify any unusual patterns or movement.

Combined with our other smart farm solutions, our IoT cattle tracking collar allows you to manage your farm and livestock with more ease and accuracy.

GPS location tracking

Reduce your animal loss by keeping track of them wherever they go with our GPS cattle tracking collars that allow you to track your livestock in real time, from anywhere.

You can also use the location data to monitor repetitive behaviour and analyse cattle behaviour.

Sets geofences

You can set predefined geofences and our IoT cattle tracking collar will monitor when an animal enters or leaves an area. Geofencing will also help by alerting you if an animal is too close to a fence or some other hazard.

Monitor activity

A GPS cattle collar can track an animal’s habitual movements during the day and night, alerting you if they break from these patterns. This could also indicate and provide early warning of any sickness or injury. For example, if a certain animal tends to graze in a certain area at a specific time and they are not there as usual, you’ll be alerted to this change in behaviour. You can also track an animal’s roaming distance, the distance they travel on any given time or day and their distance from the rest of the herd.
