Abstract

The objective of this study is to develop a cattle monitoring system for tracking cattle combating rustling in extensive grazing areas, grazing reserves, grazing routes and ranches. The system is majorly made up of a collar that consists majorly of a GSM & GPS module. This system would not only combat cattle rustling activities but would also serve as an anti-theft system. When cattle wearing the collar exits the virtual fences, an SMS containing the coordinates of the collar is sent to the cattle farmer enabling him to check the cattle’s position and ward off a potential danger or theft. SMS alerts are also sent to the farmer also when the battery of the collar is low, the collar is unbuckled from the cattle and when the farmer calls the collar to know its location. This system would provide cattle farmers with the opportunity to fully monitor their herd within a particular grazing region
