An Early Warning System for Livestock Health

Since the earliest days of the livestock industry, cowboys have monitored the health condition of cattle by roaming the herds in the open range or feedlots, looking for sick cattle by identifying the visual signs of pink and watering eyes or runny noses.

Until now, this method was the only reasonable means available for finding sick animals and continues to be practiced today.

However, with today's difficult to treat diseases such as BRD (Bovine Respiratory Disease), BVD (Bovine Virus Diarrhea), Foot-and-Mouth Disease, and other known diseases that can quickly infect herds on an epidemic scale, it is now paramount to have rapid, real-time reporting of large-scale disease outbreaks, as well as a more efficient way to track the health condition of individual animals.
