When I had a ranch in West Texas, we were a stock our operation, always having to weigh cattle. Very frustrating because I had 7000 head and I don't know what anything weighed. Guess what? I got paid on weight. We had to get the cowboys in, get them loaded on a trailer and then move them to a scale, get a tare weight on the vehicles and trailer, come up with a way because I had to ship at 800 pounds. It was either too light or too heavy. When we were coming back from the scales one day I looked at my son and I said, we're not going to do this anymore. I said, What are you talking about? I said, we're going to take a picture and get away. That was in 2005. We worked real hard and it seems that my mind was ahead of technology. We had a difficult time trying to find a scientist and we found one. So from 2005 until 2021, we worked on cattle and then we worked on swine because we got a call from Smithfield Hams, can you help us out? And they harvest 20 million animals a year. They needed to be able to get a weight. And the more I got into this, Mr. David, it seemed as though it was a need that was really global, truly global. So we put a lot of resources into it. People with money worked very, very hard.
We’ll hear more specifics about the technology in another episode but basically a camera takes a picture of an animal and there is some paradigm that then analyzes the image and produces the weight of the animal accurate to within 3%. ClicR Technologies
