How the Cattle Scan System works?

Cattle Scan, an Ontario-based company, has developed an affordable livestock monitoring system that tracks animals biometrics and behaviour parameters of individual cows in real-time using a sensor located inside the cow's reticulorumen.


The system can be complementary to any existing technology you may have on your farm. Cattle Scan allows remote tracking on a 24/7 basis and can identify a sick animal 2-3 days prior to when visual symptoms appear, immediately sending a “health alert” to your phone or computer.

The bolus is inserted into the animal at the earliest opportunity. Once inside the cow, the bolus starts transmitting readings to receivers, installed in the building, that transmit the data to an on-site computer where the temperature, animal identification, date and time can be viewed and recorded.
