Welcome to Beeftrack
Beeftrack is a comprehensive cattle management and traceability system for feedlot farming. It enables farmers to view animal data and information in real time on a Cloud dashboard. It is a modular system supporting small, medium and large feedlots.
The Beeftrack system contains the following features:
• The Tracking Module manages the health monitoring and weight gain of animals from take-on until marketing.
• The Feed Logistics Module manages the tractors used to deliver feed to pens.
• The Sorting Module manages the sorting process according to selected parameters.
Beeftrack is supplied and integrated with all the required hardware such as RFID ear tags, scanners, scales and RFID readers necessary for data collection.
Beeftrack is a cattle management and traceability system for feedlots. The system is Cloud based which enables farmers to view a dashboard and manage operations in real time on line and using mobile phones.
Beeftrack collects data using the following methods:
Handheld RFID scanners are used for Registration, Identification, Weighing, Treatment and Pen Location
Fixed RFID scanners are used for registration, weighing and location.
The data collected by the scanners are stored on the scanners and uploaded to the Cloud when an Internet Connection is available.
This module supports the following functions:
Registering: Using RFID enabled ear tags, cattle are registered on receiving and the relevant data is captured such as origin, breed, sex and condition
Identification: by scanning an animal in the field, it can be identified and the full history can be retrieved
Weighing: Beeftrack identifies each head of cattle and captures its weight automatically, improving accuracy and speed
Treatment: The condition and treatment of each head of cattle is captured and linked to its traceability record
Location: The pen location of each animal is captured and maintained
Disposal: Should an animal die, the details and reason is captured
Marketing: Animals sent for sale and scanned and the data captured automatically
This module manages a fleet of tractors and automatically captures the feed type, weight and date/time of dispensing at each pen. The tractor hardware communicates via WiFi or 3G.
This module manages the sorting gates and control gate opening based on the selected sorting criteria
The Beeftrack system is developed and supported by Techsolutions, the leading South African RFID company with more than 20 years of experience in developing RFID tracking systems and RFID hardware.
Beeftrack was developed in 2019 in response to and in cooperation with feedlot farmers. Beeftrack was launched in 2020 after successful rollout and testing with feedlot farmers.
