HerdDogg's New Direct-to-Satellite StarDogg Connects Remote Herds to the HerdDogg Livestock Data Platform

LARAMIE, Wyo., Dec. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- HerdDogg®, the precision-livestock IoT leader, announced the availability of StarDoggtm, HerdDogg's satellite-connected DoggBone® reader. StarDogg addresses the needs of ranchers operating on remote ranchland by providing a direct-to-satellite connection to the Animal Traceability Platform®. Designed for ranchland where there is no cellular connection, StarDogg enables ranchers to keep a close eye on the location and wellbeing of their animals, no matter where they are, 24x7.

Developed in collaboration with Swarm Technologies, StarDogg integrates Swarm's satellite modem, which transmits and receives data via Swarm's satellite network, into HerdDogg's DoggBone tag reader. Whenever an animal with a HerdDogg DoggTag® Bluetooth sensor is within range of a StarDogg transceiver, it offloads tracking and behavior insights about the animal, and then transmits it via satellite to HerdDogg's cloud-based livestock data platform.

"StarDogg is perfect for ranchers with significant acreage and those who graze cattle on land leased from the Bureau of Land Management, where there is generally no terrestrial cellular coverage," said Melissa Brandao, founder and chief revenue officer of HerdDogg. "Swarm's technology provides a cost-effective alternative to tracking animals with a GPS collar or tag."

"We are delighted to help HerdDogg expand the scope of its livestock monitoring capabilities, without being constrained by the availability of cellular coverage," said Sara Spangelo, CEO and co-founder of Swarm. "For ranchers grazing their herds on vast landscapes, the combination of HerdDogg and Swarm Technologies enables more accurate remote management and improved oversight of herd and herd resources."

By adding StarDogg to their HerdDogg system, ranchers can:
