MEASURING IT TO MANAGE IT – IMPROVING IN-CALF RATE THROUGH HEAT DETECTION
Imagine if you could give your dairy cows a voice. With Allflex dairy cow monitoring you can. At your fingertips, right on your phone, you will know when they’re on heat, calving, sick, and so much more.
Our reproduction monitoring applications eliminate the guesswork and inconsistency of physically evaluating the reproductive status of every individual heifer and cow. Joining can be a labour intensive part of the season and using this advanced technology to improve insemination accuracy can be a huge cost saver.
The graph below shows how the activity increase and rumination drop indicate heat accurately and precisely.
Improve your nutrition strategy by quickly understanding how your cows react to ration changes including toxin or feed issues and ratio modifications.
The effects of ration adjustments can be detected in as little as a few hours, enabling informed nutrition decisions that optimise herd health, reproduction, and milk productivity. Graphs showing short and long term trends provide farmers with an additional perspective for evaluating ration changes.
With less reliance on staff and timely information at your fingertips, Allflex systems improve the overall well-being of all team members. Phone alerts help staff identify a problem early and allow for effective intervention by giving them the resources to be solutions-focused and proactive. Relying on data, rather than people, ensures all staff get regular
breaks over the mating season.
Early detection of illness can have a huge impact on cow recovery and performance. Allflex systems provide up-to-the-minute distress alerts for early detection of problems such as ketosis, clinical mastitis and lame cows.
