• The plan is to connect the internet to everything from sheep to riverbanks so that the countryside can also benefit from the digital revolution that cities enjoy.
  • Under the proposals, digital collars could track animals, soil sensors warn of erosion, riverbank devices give flooding alerts and even badger tags provide an early warning system for bovine TB.
  • Sheep will be gradually equipped with electronic collars to monitor their movements and understand their habits. These, in theory, could also be used to create as many wi-fi access points as the animals wearing them.
