RFID technology helps farmers identify sick cows
Even as RFID is allowing water-park patrons to share photos on Facebook in Washington state, it’s also helping UK farmers keep tabs on their cows and get an earlier sense for when they’re sick. That latter effort is part of a new project being tested out at the UK’s Newcastle University, designed to track the feeding behavior of each individual animal and alert farmers to any change that might indicate the cow is unwell.
