The Ferme Blanche Rive farm in Temiskaming has what you could call a 'baby monitor' for cows. The device, based on anti-theft technology, enables the farmer to know when an animal is ready to give birth without having to constantly check on the animal. That gives the farmer an extra forty winks, knowing that there are no false alarms with this innovation. The device is non-invasive and can be adapted for use in other animals
