Digitanimal is a location and monitoring system for extensive production farms. In addition to the neck tags with the sensors, Digitanimal consists also on a cloud solution and a user application for Android, iOS and web. Thereby the system allows to know anywhere and anytime where each animal is. Monitoring is based on the activity of the animal and its behaviour regarding the other animals of the herd.

The main benefit expressed for these farmers: ease of mind. These farmers feel much more at ease using a positioning system like the one from Digitanimal.
