Drones for Livestock

There are many uses for drones on a cattle operation including calving checks, head counts, checking fences or even reading eartags.  With the right equipment it is even feasible to find cattle with an aerial thermal camera in large pastures with thick brush and deep coulees.  This demonstration will compare the capabilities of different drones specifically at the ranch or feedlot.

Demonstration looking at various models of drones and their capabilities for finding cattle & reading eartags. The demo will also demonstrate workflows for counting cattle in pasture. The highlight of the demo will be the Matrice 30T, a mid-class aircraft just released for search & rescue which is equally useful for finding cattle – thermal camera and incredible zoom capability.
