Quantified Ag’s LoRa-based sensors allow accurate analysis of a cow’s health, increasing efficiency

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Quantified Ag, a company specializing in Internet of Things (IoT) cattle tracking and cattle health solutions, has implemented Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its smart cattle tags for advanced health monitoring. Quantified Ag’s devices are implemented in feedlots in the U.S. and Australia.

“Semtech’s LoRa Technology allows us to respond much faster to cattle disease than conventional techniques,” said Vishal Singh, CEO of Quantified Ag. “Communications throughout the day from an individual animal’s smart ear tag minimize the delay from when the animal contracts an illness to when it starts showing symptoms, which improves a cattle producer’s business model and increases productivity. We’ve seen significant results in increased efficiency.”

Quantified Ag’s LoRa-based hardware collects data continuously – 24 hours a day, every day – allowing feedlot workers to detect and respond to anomalies in a cow’s behavior and vitals. Each sensor measures body temperature and activity, and the data is sent to the Cloud for analysis in real-time or stored for trend reports. Applications scan the data for outliers such as a cow showing reduced mobility or elevated body temperature, which could be signs of disease. Feedlot workers are then notified of the anomaly, and can act quickly to prevent disease from worsening or spreading.

“LoRa Technology and LoRaWAN™ connectivity go hand-in-hand with agriculture with its long range, easy deployment and flexible capabilities,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology maximizes efficiency and sustainability by providing a cutting-edge IoT solution that improves results in cattle health detection. With IoT solutions, like LoRa, we can work toward a smarter planet, while solving real-world challenges today.”
