How does Ceres Tag work?

Ceres Tag is an all-in-one solution to monitor your animals via GPS tracking. The device transmits data directly to low earth orbit (LEO) satellites and is accessed through your existing farm management or animal management software.

How many tags are in a box?

Ceres Trace, Ceres Ranch and Ceres Wild all come in boxes of 5, 10 and 24.

Can I remove a Ceres Tag?

Ceres Trace and Ceres Wild have been designed for "one tag, one life" application and are not able to be removed nor reapplied to another animal to ensure traceability and reduce biosecurity and theft risks.

Ceres Ranch includes all the features and benefits of a Ceres Trace Tag in a reusable casing. This is the only reusable product from Ceres Tag.

Can I use a different applicator?

Ceres Tag has been designed to only be applied with the Ceres Tag Smart Applicator. Failure to use a Ceres Tag Smart Applicator, will result in the tag not functioning as expected and will void the warranty.

You can activate a Ceres Tag with the Activation Tool.

Where do I find instructions?

Do I have to tag every animal?

You don't need to tag every animal to get the insights you need! You can tag strategically and benchmark the herd or mob to receive location, behaviour, and welfare insights for all animals. We typically suggest tagging 10% of your animals and scaling this up as you need from there.

How do I view the data?

Ceres Tag does not provide end user software but rather integrates with other software platforms. You can view software options on our software partner page here. After purchase of the tags you are required to link your chosen software to our system. Once linked the data automatically flows through to the software partner.

How many times per day does the tag transmit data?

Ceres Trace & Ceres Ranch tags transmit up to 4 data packets per day and Ceres Wild tags transmit up to 24 data packets per day. The animal alert data packets are in addition to this.
