Globalstar, Inc. (NYSE American: GSAT), a provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, has announced its partnership with Ceres Tag, a provider of livestock information systems using a proprietary smart ear tag, to conduct its final stages of commercial large-scale trials for the provenance and management of livestock, the company said.
These trials will be a significant scale extension of previous trials performed by Ceres Tag on 100 animals in North Queensland, Australia in early 2019.
The Globalstar and Ceres Tag partnership aims to improve efficiencies within the agriculture industry with benefits including livestock theft detection, better operational management for livestock location, improved provenance along the entire supply chain, improved detection and tracking for health and bio-security systems and more information on animal welfare.
Ceres Tag will commence large scale trials in Australia in multiple environmental and climatic conditions to test and validate the operational proficiency of its complete livestock information platform which has been a collaboration with Meat & Livestock Australia, Queensland Government, Commonwealth Science Industry Research Organization (CSIRO), James Cook University and Clandestine Design Group. Once trials are complete, Ceres Tag is expecting to enter the market in the second half of 2020.
Ceres Tag is a next generation livestock information platform using a proprietary smart ear tag to produce location, provenance, traceability and animal health & welfare information to improve data driven decisions for all stakeholders in the supply chain from paddock to processor and beyond. Ceres Tag decreases risk and increases transparency, fundamentally improving the detection of bio-security threats, financing of operations and insurance evaluation. Learn more at Ceres Tag.com.
