Texas Cows Wearing Fit-Bits
Cattle ranchers in West Texas are strapping fit-bits on their cows. The fitness trackers keep track of the herd's movements at a time when the industry is facing a labor shortage. Instead of wrapping them around their hooves, they're worn as ear tags and collars.
The high-tech trackers, made by Micro Technologies of Amarillo, can also alert ranchers if their cattle become sick.
