Silent Herdsman is a piece of wearable tech for cows which tells the farmer when the cow is on heat.
We met Annette McDougal, of Embedded Technology Limited, on a trade mission to Brazil where we were covering the mission and producing videos to help promote the great work the Long Run Venture are doing to champion sustainable technology solutions. She was flogging her Silent Herdsman system to the Brazilian department of agriculture, she has had great success. No surprise there, Silent Herdsman is both innovative and has the potential to make farms more efficient and more profitable. Silent Herdsman is a piece of wearable tech for cows which tells the farmer when the cow is on heat. This makes it easy to artificially inseminate the cow earlier, not only does this help with milk production but also for calving and populating the farm.
Embedded Technologies got in touch soon after we got back from Brazil, asking us to produce a series of promotional videos which used testimonials from the farmers already using the system along with shots of the system working on the farm. We produced 5 films off the back of a road trip around the country which took us from the heights of Yorkshire down to the depths of Herefordshire. Here are a few of the films we produced.
