HSR® – The Easiest Plug & Play Ecosystem In The World

Harnesses the most advanced high-speed tracking, tags, and mobile technology to help you Know Your Herd® with the HerdView® Smart Reader (HSR®).

RFID cattle monitoring systems are typically a nightmare to install and get online. HerdView® has changed the game. No more running power lines, adding servers or buying Wi-Fi boosters to get internet out to the back pasture. Powered by solar and cloud-connected via cellular, HerdView® is all-in-one cattle monitoring technology that’s designed to set-up as easy as it operates.

Powerfully Portable Livestock Management Technology

While its speed, accuracy and reliability set it apart, the HerdView® HSR® portability puts it in a class by itself. The battery is capable of providing 70+ hours of continuous monitoring away from a power source. Take it to another pasture to count cattle moving in. Move it to a holding pen to track new arrivals coming off the truck. The HerdView® system goes where the needs of your herd take it.

Where To Install The HerdView® Smart Reader (HSR®)

Where you install the home base for the HerdView® HSR® is important. Although the HSR® can be placed over any chute, pen or pasture gate, we recommend placing it at a water trough to maximize the system’s Intelligent Area Monitoring capabilities.

Tracking an animal’s movement to and from water is an early detector of potential sickness, and a key to maximizing the benefits of the HerdView® technology.

For counting, pasture transfers or other cattle monitoring needs away from its home base, simply remove the HerdView® HSR® from the mount and return it to recharge when finished.

Easy Installation. Endless Possibilities.
