GPS Cattle Tracking
Easily and affordably track and monitor your cattle with GPS.
Animal tracking has been around for decades but is only now becoming an everyday technology. Size, weight and price of gps ear tags have been major factors that have prevented widespread adoption. Tracking technology has rapidly evolved and cattle tracking has now become a reality. Ranchers can select how often they need the location of an animal, which can be as fast as every 1 minute. As well, today’s technology has the ability to last the lifetime of the animal which eliminates the need to change batteries. Smart farming provides an easy to use monitoring system to help you make management decisions that directly improve your ROI. No matter if you are interested in simple animal identification, or more advanced livestock tracking, our solar ear tags provide a easy to apply solution for advanced livestock management.
Cellular based cattle tracking is the most common and easy to deploy. There are no base stations to deploy, you get frequent updates and coverage is based on cellular networks.
Satellite based cattle tracking works almost everywhere on earth, does not require a base station and can send data in 30 minute, 1 hour or 6 hour intervals. Requires a clear view of the sky.
LoRa based cattle tracking works great in areas without any infrastructure, but requires the user to setup a base station. Location updates can be as fast as every 1 minute.
Cellular Cattle GPS Tracking
Easily track your cattle with cellular technology
With no base station to install, you can quickly connect one of our cellular GPS trackers to your animals in minutes. The tracking device will operate on the local cellular network and provide locations directly to your phone or computer.
Location updates can be as fast as every 5 minutes. Update frequency can be changed remotely.
Connecting a cellular tracking device to the animal can sometimes be tricky. We see many users attaching the Oyster2 tracking device to a collar and strapping this to the animal. Sim cards are included and the device will automatically connect to AT&T or TMobile towers. If the animal travels outside of cellular coverage, you will not receive any livestock tracking updates.
Battery life estimates for the cellular based cattle/animal trackers are as follows:
- 15 Minutes – 11 Weeks
- 1 Hour – 44 Weeks
- 6 Hour – 257 Weeks
Battery life estimates are only estimates. The life of the battery depends heavily on the strength of the cellular signals in the area.

Satellite Cattle Tracking
The smallest GPS cattle tracker available
Imagine being able to monitor the location of your cattle at any time, in almost any area of the globe. No cell service required. The smallest and most powerful solar powered cattle GPS tracker is now available. Weighing only 24 grams and barely bigger than a golf ball, this tracking device is a step above the rest.
The easiest solar powered cattle gps ear tracker
Collar GPS trackers have been around for a long time, but ranchers can have problems with the size of the collar and the possibility of the animal getting caught in branches or brush. The cattle ear tag allows for easy installation and removes the risk of the cattle getting hung up in the brush.
