Track sow data on your own phone
Big Dutchman’s new Bluetooth Electronic Sow Tag Reader is a new-generation reader and a remarkably handy tool to manage electronically tagged sows. The reader registers the sow number and transfers it wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The BigFarmNet app, available for Android and iOS, links the ear transponder number to the corresponding animal data so the farm manager can see all up-to-date information about the sow on his/her preferred device.
Unlike conventional ear tag readers, Big Dutchman’s BestReader is exceptionally handy, weighing only 4-1/2 ounces and is small enough to fit in your pocket just like a small phone. It requires no cables for data transfer and does not need to be plugged in – the battery is simply charged by an inductive charging “power plate” to last you for up to one week. This in turn allows for an absolutely robust design with an IP (Ingress Protection) rating of 69, meaning it has the absolute highest protection against dust and liquids.
The BFN app synchronizes the transferred data automatically and in real time with the BigFarmNet management program on the office PC. No cables or manual syncing necessary thanks to the wireless network or GSM. The software is based on Big Dutchman’s innovative BigFarmNet technology which is able to interconnect the entire farm so that all applications and controls communicate within one single program.
