  • Publication number: 20200367471
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and system for tracking near-field communication (NFC)-enabled animals with a portable computing device (PCD) (i.e. mobile phone) may include providing an NFC-tag comprising memory in which the memory contains a unique identifier. The NFC-tag may be coupled to an animal and then the NFC-tag may be scanned with the PCD. A tag identification server may determine if data from the NFC-tag exists in a database and then transmits an animal production facility identifier and one or more animal records associated with data from the NFC-tag from the tag identification server if the data from the NFC-tag exists in the database. Access to a secure memory area on the portable computing device containing a complete set of animal records for an entire animal facility may be granted if the software identifier matches the animal production facility identifier received from the tag identification server.

  • Patent number: 10806123
    Abstract: The present invention builds and conveys to users in need thereof a Grass Growth Index (GGI) and a Nematode Suitability Index (NSI), to assist the determination of whether and when to administer parasiticides to grazing livestock, such as bovine, ovine and caprine animals. In particular, the invention relates to a computer-implemented method whereby GGI and NSI are calculated based upon both user-supplied information (e.g. grass/forage type and location data) and user-independent information (e.g. weather and environmental condition data associated with the location over time, and grass and nematode growth parameters). Importantly, the disclosed methods provide users with information as to when and where their herds of grazing animals may be at the greatest risk of parasite infestation.

  • Publication number: 20200275635
    Abstract: A computer system and method for tracking a companion animal and alerting an owner of the companion animal when the companion animal is lost may include a server generating a web page associated with a near-field-communication (NFC) portion of an electronic tag. The electronic tag may be coupled to the companion animal with a mechanical device. The server may generate a geo-fence that is associated with the electronic tag and the server may monitor the geo-fence to determine if the electronic tag has exited the geo-fence. The server may send a message to the web page if the electronic tag has exited the geo-fence. The server may then send an alert to a portable computing device if the electronic tag has exited the geo-fence. The server may send a command to the electronic tag to change from a first rate to a second rate for a device identifier reporting rate.

  • Publication number: 20200253163
    Abstract: The application discloses a multi-chamber, multi-formulation fluid delivery system, comprising a multi-chamber applicator in fluid communication with multi-chamber packaging. Applicators according to the instant disclosure have reduced squeeze-strength requirements, and are useful for dispensing fluids, including medicaments, to animals, including livestock animals. The multi-chamber packaging provides separate storage for formulations containing incompatible active ingredients, and is suitable for use with the multi-chamber applicator. The application also discloses methods for using the system to simultaneously deliver multiple active ingredients, at least some of which are not suitable for co-formulation, thus reducing the time, economic burden and animal stress involved with applying multiple, separate formulations to animals.
