Animal Monitoring & Tracking

The sun might set each evening on your fields, but as any livestock farmer knows, the work doesn’t end there. Predators, animals wandering off or falling ill, birthing at all hours…. Livestock management is a complex, around-the-clock job, but no livestock farmer can be everywhere at once – until now. Manage your animals like never before with smart livestock collars. More money in your back pocket, minimised operating costs, reduced animal losses, improved birthing success rates, and increased animal health and safety rates make the Y2K Animal Tracker the tool every animal-owner can’t afford to be without. Here’s why:

How It Works


Along with being cost-effective, lightweight, reusable, and having a long range and battery life, Y2K IoT Animal Tracker comes with a host of features and benefits:

Monitors Animal Activity

The smart collar can track the animal’s habitual movements during the day and night, alerting you if they break from these patterns which could indicate they may be sick or injured.

Tracks Distance Travelled

You can also track distance in terms of how far the animal roams, the total distance they travel on any given day/time, how far they travel in the last 24 hours, and their distance from the rest of the heard.

Offers GPS Location

The GPS feature allows you to reduce your animal loss by keeping track of them wherever they go, as well as when they go. The Smart Collar also monitors and alerts you when an animal enters or leaves an area.

Sets Geofences

The geofence feature allows you to monitor an animal within a certain area, noting their behavior in that area (i.e. their watering hole habits). It also assists in alerting you if an animal is too close to a fence, and places itself in danger.

Reads Temperature

Allows you to predict if an animal is sick well-ahead of time (i.e. their temperature changes before sickness hits). You can also tell when they will be in heat, as well as their ambient temperature.

Captures Data

Identify trends and monitor repetitive behavior in your animals with algorithms that analyse the information from the collars and generate notifications when an anomaly and/or important event is detected.

Frequently Asked Questions

Y2K ’s livestock animal collars are plug-and-play, so they don’t require pairing or complex configuration, and can be connected to the network in a matter of minutes. Once connected, each device gathers information on the location of an animal, as well as the animal’s speed, body temperature and stress levels. This information is transmitted to the Internet and made available in a user-friendly way via a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. Alert notifications are sent if an animal strays beyond set boundaries, or if a health or behavioural anomaly occurs. For the first time, a rancher has a birds-eye-view of his entire herd, right at his fingertips.

Yes. Animals that fall ill are identified before disaster strikes, when their smart collars detect warning signs like increased body temperature and decreased movement.

Thanks to the highly-accurate GPS tracker in smart livestock collars, a cattle farmer who can’t fence his large herd in their summer pasture can now simply set boundaries on an app-based satellite map.

In a number of ways. Data can be accessed about individual animals or the herd as a whole. Graphs and reports chart movement patterns, grazing routes, activity, distance travelled and time spent resting. Maps show routes travelled by animals during a given time period.

This all-in-one platform allows farmers to keep comprehensive files on each animal and share those files with veterinarians, suppliers and public authorities. Armed with a powerful set of data, farmers can easily partner with key stakeholders to make informed long-term decisions about the wellbeing of their herds.
