Technology allows you to monitor cattle with GPS


Sensors are installed in the neck of cattle.

Farmers in Norway have managed to dodge the problem of large British and continental cattle breeding in the country from the use of GPS. That's because the researchers came up with the idea of using technology to track grazing patterns during the summer months, according to an article from Eivind Torgersen.

According to researcher Morten Tofastrud, he and his students equipped about 30 animals with GPS collars. They track the position of the animals every five minutes, allowing researchers to track their movements. The activity sensors on the collars followed the head and neck movements of the cattle. This allowed Tofastrud to know if they were actively grazing or not. Read more.
