Abstracts for project: Demonstration of Monitors for Remote Watering Systems for Livestock
number: 20170335


The objectives of the project were to demonstrate two different types of monitors for remote livestock water systems - 1) 'low tech' beacon system and 2) 'high tech' camera system and test out the reliability and functionality of each system. Each system was tested by a local cattle producer and their experience was recorded at the end of the term. It was found the camera system was reliable and functional. For the beacon system, it is not ideal for watering systems where the beacon can't be seen throughout the day. A field day was held to demonstrate the systems, and several social media posts were made about the project. A video about the project was also posted on YouTube and Facebook.
