I was looking for an supportive heat detection tool and found with SMARTBOW the ideal program. SMARTBOW records not only the activity of my cows and send based on that heat alerts, furthermore it shows, how many minutes a cow is ruminating per day. For me, as a part-time farmer, this additional feature provides a good ovierview of the health state of my cows. As soon as a cow doesn´t refer to the common values in rumination I will get informed by SMS.
I am enthusiastic about the easy use of the system. The entries are done easy and fast and the software is highly user friendly. I am using SMARTBOW as a herd manager and rely on the health and breeding lists automatically. The herd- and health management is done mostly by SMARTBOW.
Especially interesting and helpful for my farm is that the indiviual animal costs are listet clearly. Through diverse statistics and reports in the software I know every time, in which area I have problems and where I can set something to improve my success and performance on my farm.
