ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE

  • ACTIVITY

    Ability to identify cows requiring attention for servicing or for potential preventive health treatment

  • RUMINATION

    A cow’s hours of rumination can be calculated based on various behaviors. The combination of this along with other health parameters can help ensure early detection of potential health problems and result in the most reliable attention alerts

  • COW POSITIONING

    Beacons are placed every 50 to 66 feet (15 to 20 meters along both the length and width of the barn. After creating a map of the barn and calibrating the beacons, the beacons signal between the neck tag and a central antenna to calculate the position of each cow. You are then able to locate each cow in the barn from your tablet, smartphone or PC.

  • TIME SAVINGS

    Save hours of time without having to search for cows needing attention; map can be shared with inseminator, vet and employees so they can easily work with the system to complete their task on their own

  • IDS ANYWHERE

    There is no need for the animal to walk through a parlor ID portal making it ideal for heifers and dry cows
