Ever Gotten a Text From a Cow?

Moocall is and Irish company that produces calving sensors that warns farmers when a cow is one hour from birthing. The sensors help ensure that the cow and calf are cared for in the event of a difficult birth.

Moocall came about a few years back when farmer Niall Austin lost a cow and calf due to a difficult birth. The sensor, works by monitoring the movement of a cow’s tail in order to predict when labor is imminent. When that magic time arrives, the device send a text message from the cow going into labor.
