Pregnant cows send SMS

Pregnant cows informing the farmer by SMS when they’re about to give birth – how sweet!

The device that can make this happen, was introduced at a farmers convention in the French Rennes.  A week before the scheduled birth, a thermometer should be inserted into the cow’s vagina.  This thermometer is attached through sensors to a mobile phone. Twice a day, the farmer is updated about the temperature of the animal.  When the water breaks, the thermometer escapes the animal. The sudden temperature drop activates the system, which sends a SMS to alert the beginning of the birth process to the farmer.
