Livestock theft is increasing dramatically. Using dairy cows as a working example: on average a cow produces around 7,000 litres of milk per year, although highly-productive Holsteins might produce double that amount. Every act of livestock theft threatens a serious long term impact on a farm’s ability to generate income. To that immediate loss must be added the increasing cost of insurance premiums. NFC offer highly cost-effective market leading livestock theft prevention technologies, designed to safeguard livestock 24 hours a day, by employing remarkably simple yet highly effective Orion security solutions.

NFC Group offers an entirely viable livestock tagging and rural crime prevention . There are various ways in which the Orion network with Orion Tags can be deployed. They can either be attached to livestock directly, or alternatively, covert installations at access points that will provide real time warning the moment a gate is opened or a fence is moved. In the event a tracked asset’s tag starts to report suspicious activity, the onboard GPS and beacon mode can be activated. This is very similar to how an airplane black box by pulsating a unique RF signal. The result is comprehensive livestock visibility, tracking and recovery. Orions active RFID tags work by relaying detailed information back to the customer every 30 seconds whilst in motion or every 2 minutes whilst stationary. Each Orion tag relays: Time, temperature, tamper, movement alerts, speed, latitude, longitude, battery information, shock reports and relative signal strength indication (RSSI) depending on which battery is selected to power the tags, they will remain operational for up to 5 years reporting in on a 30 second cycle with a D cell battery.
