Wagyu Goes High Tech to Meet Surging Demand From Rich Asians – Bloomberg

Hiroki Sawai, who raises 2,200 cattle at his ranch in western Japan, received an alert on his phone one evening last year: a calf had fallen and wasn’t getting up. 

He called on staff to check the barn immediately as fallen cows often require prompt aid and, if ill, treatment.
