Fort Supply Technologies & True Ranches team up to provide a suite of Precision Livestock Management Solutions to cattle operations
Fort Supply Technologies announces a significant investment from True Ranches to advance tracking solutions for the beef supply chain from the ranch, through finishing, to the packer. The synergy of these two exceptional companies will greatly accelerate Fort Supply Technologies’ ability to provide resources and personnel necessary to more broadly implement solutions for dual frequency EID reading, autonomous health and asset monitoring, and managing of value-added cattle data. Fort Supply Technologies’ suite of innovative solutions allows cattle operations to increase profit through technology by either automating or streamlining data collection and workflow.
Fort Supply Technologies is a leader in precision livestock management solutions that enable beef operations to meet consumer demand for safe and sustainable food, while improving overall productivity. Solutions include Dual Tracker, the beef industry’s first and only dual frequency EID reading solution (patent pending); Health Tracker, an autonomous health monitoring and alert system that provides early sickness detection, minimizing the use of antibiotics (patent pending); Asset Tracker, an autonomous group monitoring and individual animal tracking system that keeps managers informed of unexpected movements; and Value Tracker, EID tags, readers, ruggedized devices, and software, all of which are guaranteed to work seamlessly together.
“Our operation was looking for innovative technology that would relieve several of our stress points. Early sickness detection, movement monitoring and eliminating human error in data entry were all areas we looked to improve. When Fort Supply approached us, we quickly saw the value in their solutions,” said Rob Gill, Superintendent of True Ranches. “It didn’t take long before we understood that a collaboration between our two companies would greatly benefit us and the beef industry.”
“Fort Supply Technologies’ solutions are game-changers for the beef industry. They provide cost-effective, easy-to-use technologies that address complicated and otherwise expensive problems. Teaming up with True Ranches gives us the opportunity to bring the benefit of our solutions to a much wider market,” said Malcolm Harvey, President of Fort Supply Technologies. “True Ranches is a terrific fit for us. They are committed to accelerating progress in the beef industry, enhancing animal health and well-being and worker safety to delivering top dollar for value-added beef.”
