By The Things Industries

Smart agriculture technologies help farmers improve all areas of agricultural productivity, including asset tracking, smart irrigation, soil moisture monitoring, and much more. LoRaWAN stands out because of its widespread coverage in rural areas, long battery life, and a variety of applications that assist farmers in making better decisions and improving their operations.

Halter's unique solution for monitoring cows, which includes a solar-powered collar and a smartphone app, saves on farmer efforts. The system guides cows about the land, creates virtual fences, senses heat, and automatically drafts a cow. mOOvement leverage LoRaWAN for their smart GPS Ear Tag that can track and locate cattle (or any other animal) over long distances, even when there is no mobile service.
