Rise of The Cattle

In a recent article on the website, Beef Magazine, the idea of managing cattle through the use of drones is discussed. As the use of UAVs becomes more prevalent in our society, developers of this technology are finding more and more applications for its use. Pete Cunningham, with Ag Eagle and Cunningham Ag Services, envisions the use of drones for cattle management. Through the use of ear tags embedded with sensors, a rancher can monitor the health of all his cattle and receive updates on those that most need his attention. The possible benefits include, a huge reduction in time, curbing sickness among the animals, and being able to do more during adverse weather. How easy will this technology be for cattle ranchers to adopt? Will this have any downsides to managing cattle?
