Technology is constantly evolving in agriculture. Fargo-based 701x is delivering real-time information to cattle producers with its smart ear tags. Founder and CEO Kevin Biffert says this system makes it easier to track the herd. “I’m an engineer by trade and used to run a company in Fargo that did automation,” Biffert said in an interview with RRFN. “I believe labor shortages is causing people to look to other things to help them get more done with the same number of family members that they have.” 701x uses data and artificial intelligence to provide critical information, such as health alerts. “The main thing is to put it on your bulls and monitor that they’re mounting cows to get your cows more pregnancy which gets you more revenue.”
