    Monitor Temperature to Prevent Cold Stress in Calves

    As we head into the coldest months of the year, you might be concerned about the comfort and survival of your livestock. This is especially the case when it comes to calves. The USDA estimates that 95,000 calves die each year due to cold stress and hypothermia, which makes their survival challenging for calves born during the winter and early spring. The good news is that weather meters such as the AG Livestock DROP Environmental Monitoring Pack, can provide needed livestock level weather information for farmers to adapt the housing and feeding regimes for their calves in cold winter conditions to keep them safe.

  3. How to Remote View Kestrel Data in Four Easy Steps

    How to Remote View Kestrel Data in Four Easy Steps

    We are often asked about how to remotely view environmental data from a Kestrel meter. The Kestrel 5000 series, including DROP data loggers, allow users to monitor and chart data including wind chill, dew point, heat stress index, and more. Industries from the military to scientific disciplines are using Kestrel meters to monitor conditions. Kestrels are known for providing accurate, onsite, on-the-spot microclimate weather data. With LiNK connectivity, you are able to wirelessly see and manage data on a mobile device with the free Kestrel LiNK app within 100’ line of sight. However, there is a way to set up for viewing Kestrel data outside of those parameters. This guide will show you how to do that.
