Meat and dairy products are negatively impacted by a lack of technology in the livestock industry in developing countries. To cater for this challenge, the Internet of Things (IoT), Node-MCU, and intelligent wireless sensor nodes are deployed to create a new smart dairy monitoring system. A cow collar with a temperature sensor, a GPS module, and an environmental parameter regularization system are included. Data from modules is stored in a separate database using an innovative IoT -based front end. All the deployed WS nodes can determine whether the environment is stable or not at any given time. Sensors built inside cow collars can assess vital indications like temperature and pulse rate, as well as the animal's exact location. The design of the Cow collar also has a feature that automatically alerts the owner. The plug-and-play technology offered is designed to be easy to adapt. When a farm has many animals, automation decreases the need for human involvement and so lowers labor expenses. The exploitation of remote monitoring systems improves the health of the animals and hence yields a better amount of dairy. This study also includes a detailed comparison of the proposed implementation with current systems to demonstrate its originality. Other applications, such as smart monitoring of zoo animals and poultry, may be derived from the proposed technology.
