Installation of the TekSensor tag in livestock


Each TekSensor tag comes as a complete kit in a sealed plastic bag. The visual tag, the electronic tag, and the buttons to attach the tag to the ear come ready for attachment. The electronic tag arrives fully powered with an internal battery that will last for the animal’s lifetime. As soon as the tag is attached, the TekVet Health Monitoring System automatically picks up the electronic tag transmission, including information regarding the animal’s temperature and identification number. 
During installation, the thermistor (electronic thermometer) is slipped inside the ear canal of the animal. The length and size of the tag have been designed for easy insertion with the intention of not interfering with the animal’s use of the ear. Cattle naturally produce significant quantities of ear wax which will form a natural seal around the thermistor protecting it from the weather. The thermistor comes pre-calibrated and has a resolution of 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit.

Barely visible behind the ear hair of the animal pictured below is the electronic tag that makes up a part of the TekVet Health Monitoring System. The ear tag attaches in a manner similar to any other livestock tag with the exception that the electronic portion of the tag is equipped with a very small tube containing the thermistor that goes into the ear canal of the animal. Inside the small durable plastic case is a battery and a miniature radio system.



There are two types of tools to attach the tags. One is hand operated pliers tool and the other is a pnuematic tool for higher production operations.
