INNOVATIVE TRACKER: There’s a new long-range smart tag available for livestock care. HerdDogg is making its new DoggTags available, which use Bluetooth 5 technology to capture sensor data with an active smart tag attached to an animal’s ear. The difference is that this Bluetooth tag has a 100-yard range, which is farther than with RFID chips and other short-range tags, according to the company. The tag will report identification and location information, and it lasts for up to five years. The HerdDogg WelfareTag tracks animal biometrics and lasts up to two years. HerdDogg also has a portable tag reader – the DoggBone – with a Bluetooth-to-cellular bridge engineered for remote monitoring of livestock.
