Livestock is one of your most valuable assets as a farmer. Much like any other type of agriculture, your animals can also be susceptible to drastic temperature and climatic changes. Your livestock can adapt to changes in normal weather to a certain extent. Some animals sweat more, while others shed to cool themselves. However, these measures can only do so much if there are extreme changes in the climate around your animals. And temperature isn’t the only thing you need to be concerned about when it comes to your animals’ environment. Humidity is another crucial factor to your livestock’s health.
High heat and humidity creates a welcoming environment for microbes that can cause fungal and bacteria infections. As long as the conditions remain, the illnesses continue to spread throughout your livestock.
The good news is that you can take control of your livestock’s environment before these conditions get out of control and cause health issues. Now you have an alternative to the traditional thermometers and hygrometers that you need to constantly need to check up on.
Using the Neo for Monitoring Livestock
Thermometers and hygrometers may be accurate, but they also need someone to check them if you want to get their readings. The iMatrix Neo sensor does the work of both thermometers and hygrometers. However, it’s much more than just a thermometer/hygrometer combo. Like those devices, the Neo takes readings all throughout the day (specifically, every minute). Unlike those devices, the Neo automatically uploads its readings to the iMatrix Cloud system, where you can access them remotely from anywhere in the world. The readings are available via the iMatrix Cloud system as well as the iMatrix smartphone app.
Place the Neo sensors in your livestock enclosure and let them do all the work. You get peace of mind knowing your animals are in suitable conditions, whether you’re there to check on them or not. The Neo does more than just read environmental conditions and report them, however. With our system and the Neo sensors, you can also set optimal temperature and humidity ranges. If the Neo takes readings outside of the ranges you set, you’ll receive an alert so you can fix the problem right away.
