The integration of precision farming techniques with the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and big data analytics is vital to increase productivity in the challenging dairy industry. At the same time, the energy-efficiency and cost-effectiveness of networking solutions that bring big data from farms to the cloud should be addressed as regards economic and environmental sustainability. This article presents an opportunistic networking paradigm for a pasture-based dairy farm in which cows voluntarily participating in robotic milking are used for mulling delay-tolerant data to a fog computing node at an Internet gateway.
