“As easy as finding a sheep in a snowstorm”. Well it just got a lot easier thanks to a ground-breaking initiative by Telia IoT and Nortrace.
1000 sheep were fitted with tracking modules and connected with NB-IoT. Now, farmers can track and trace their sheep over wide areas. This is particularly valuable in remote areas with steep terrain. Finding lost, stuck or unwell sheep can take a lot of time – and when the weather’s bad – can be dangerous for both farmer and sheep.
Not only does this help to locate sheep, it also unlocks insights into sheep movement patterns and enables farmers to identify preferred pastures as well as potential risks.
