The new Valley video monitoring system allows ranchers to check conditions in a calving barn or separate pens without leaving their house. As all ranchers know, calving season brings cold, windy nights and the constant checking in the middle of the night to make sure that all is going well with the herd. Now, with equipment from Valley Telecommunications in Herreid, S.D., there is a way to monitor the cattle in the barn from the warmth of the house.

The video monitoring system consists of wireless cameras with night vision or pan, tilt and zoom and can be customized to fit any individual needs. In addition, the system can be checked from anywhere, day or night, from your computer or on your smartphone.

The system is available to anyone, including individuals who are not Valley patrons.

You may have heard about it elsewhere, so now come see how it can help your cattle operation. Visit the Valley office in Herreid or call (605) 437-2615 for more information or to get a free, no obligation quote.
