Who We Are
HerdDogg is an advanced technology company based in Longmont, Colorado.
What We Do
Since 2013, HerdDogg has been developing precision technologies for Agriculture. In our efforts we discovered the fundamental challenge to precision agriculture was both in the generation and gathering of the data. We designed a means of solving that problem for precision livestock with the "Data Generator-Gatherer" a common sense application of the newest smart radio technologies to solve the herd management and what emerged is HerdDogg, a low-cost, easy-to-use solution for precision livestock.
FIELD TESTED, Cow Tested
Our namesake product HerdDogg emerged over a year ago. We were visiting a rancher in Eastern Oregon and he began telling us how very frustrating it is to use RFID tags for livestock. Within weeks of developing our first HerdDogg tags, we had installed them on cattle. Prototypes can be difficult to make and prone to breaking but cows don't care. Our tags have undergone the worst kind of treatment from the sweetest looking animals. We had some successes and a lot of failures--broken, bitten, stepped on, pooped on and just plain lost. We fixed them, tested and re-tested and the result is the product we have today. They say hardware is hard--our hardware has been hardened by happy cows.
