Data should be transferred to a server for post processing and display, once collected by bolus, collar, nail, or binder. This will require an intermediary system to send the collected data to the user (server). This is done by scanner and gateway. Scanners may enrich the data transfer by adding animal location, body temperature etc. before transmission. The scanner may additionally help the farmer to access the livestock file.
