WHAT IS HERD SCOUT?
It's a premier remote sensing solution for ranchers that reduces the cost of business and ultimately improves efficiency around the operation.
Traditionally, manually counting heads or using a hand-held reader instrument (that must be in close proximity to the tag) achieves accountability and inventory of farm and ranch animals. One of the most unique capabilities of Herd Scout is the ability to read and stream data to a remote or portable base station. This capability is a drastic improvement over the relatively short-range RFID cattle tags and readers in the market. Herd Scout sensors systematically stream and analyze data then provides alerts about important conditions including:

There are many reasons why a cow's body temperature changes. What if you had a tool that alerts you of certain temperature conditions such as fever, ovulation, or hoof infections? Herd Scout provides you with comprehensive readings of the animals' temperature.
Herd Scout sensors carry an Animal Identification Number (AIN) with 15 digits digitally encoded to match that printed on ear-tags. With Herd Scout it has never been easier to distinguish and find a cow among the herd.
Cattle are animals of habit roaming from pasture to pasture in search of food. Even if their food is human-assisted, they move around the ranch. With Herd Scout, the location of each cow on the ranch is always available with the assistance of maps. Herd Scout gathers activity information and generates comprehensive reports about their activity.
The Herd Scout device can be easily transferred to a new animal when needed. This means you don't have to necessarily buy new devices when you turn-over your animals.
With Herd Scout, you can access all this data easily with your smartphone, tablet or computer. If you don't have one of these devices, don't worry, we can connect to the computer in your operation's office or home.
