HerdDogg®, the precision-livestock IoT leader, announced the availability of StarDogg™, HerdDogg’s satellite-connected DoggBone® reader. StarDogg addresses the needs of ranchers operating on remote ranchland by providing a direct-to-satellite connection to the Animal Traceability Platform®. Designed for ranchland where there is no cellular connection, StarDogg enables ranchers to keep a close eye on the location and wellbeing of their animals, no matter where they are, 24×7.
Developed in collaboration with Swarm Technologies, StarDogg integrates Swarm’s satellite modem, which transmits and receives data via Swarm’s satellite network, into HerdDogg’s DoggBone tag reader. Whenever an animal with a HerdDogg DoggTag® Bluetooth sensor is within range of a StarDogg transceiver, it offloads tracking and behavior insights about the animal, and then transmits it via satellite to HerdDogg’s cloud-based livestock data platform.
