This paper investigates the use of wireless mobile ad hoc sensor networks in the nationwide cattle monitoring systems. This problem is essential for monitoring general animal health and detecting outbreaks of animal diseases that can be a serious threat for the national cattle industry and human health.

We begin by describing a number of related approaches for supporting animal monitoring applications and identify a comprehensive set of requirements that guides our approach. We then propose a novel infrastructure-less, self -organized peer to peer architecture that fulfills these requirements. The core of our work is the novel data storage and routing protocol for large scale, highly mobile ad hoc sensor networks that is based on the Distributed Hash Table (DHT) substrate that we optimize for disconnections. We show over a range of extensive simulations that by exploiting nodes’ mobility, packet overhearing and proactive caching we significantly improve availability of sensor data in these extreme conditions.
