They’ll fly their satellites until the cows come home…literally

This is a new(ish) and interesting application of satellite technology: Tracking livestock. Not just herds, but individual animals. Knowing the location of each animal in a herd helps save time when wrangling and keeps losses to predators down.

The country boy inside of me approves. FindMyAnimal simply puts a collar with a satellite signal on it, and Globalstar receives the signal and displays the animal location on a GUI.

Pretty cool!
