dc.description.abstractAn automated range-animal data acquisition system (ARADS) has been developed to collect individual animal data without human intervention. Records include date, time, identification, live-weight, water consumption, and weather variables. The system is presently being used to monitor free-ranging yearling steers and mature cows. ARADS is composed of 7 portable scale units, a weather station, and a central computer all linked together through a radio communication network. The system is expandable to include additional data stations and parameters, and the number of animals identified is not limited by the system. Scale units and the weather station operate in extreme temperatures (40 to -40 degrees C), precipitation and wind.
