Why stop at cows and sheep...let's tag all animals with these MEMs sensors and create Internet of Animals (IoA)! ;-)...remember I coined the IoA acronym first

Tracking cows? This is not new! I heard Ceitec in Brazil is doing that for years. They call it "Chip do Boi" a Brazilian-built RFID chips.

"The stakes are huge"? Should be "The steaks are huge"!

How about each steak gets an electronic signature on what the cow did in her lifetime...in top notch restaurant you will be able to preselect your cow based on MEMs sensor gather data, there will be an app for that of course...talk about value added food! (tongue firmly in cheek) ;-)

Good to see technology like MEMS reaching agriculture and its related industry. By creating such products companies will find new customers for themselves.

@GoGoGeek thanks for the update. Did "Chip do Boi" use MEMS technology ? How different or similar was this product compared to MooMonitor ?

I don't think Ceitec use MEMS accelerometer to monitor activity of the cow. Ceitec does not make the chips they use Xfab, as fa as I know. I think they real key is the RFID tag. Sure, it's great to use MEMS but I am not sure what the benefit of MEMS here realy is or is this just a novelty in experimental stage?.

Part of this really exists in Japan. ie they track the food in supply chain with RFID tags. so that when we go to grocery shop, we can track the "journey" of the food from farm till shop and make a decision.

MEMS value was clearly stated - a MEMS accelerometer measures the cow's movement. The value is predicting ovulation by combining restlessness (as measured by the accelermoter) and the cow's body temperature.
