From the beginning we wanted a system that combines all functions. In addition we choose SMARTBOW because we wanted an ear tag as an instrument. Transponder around the neck always slip again and again.
We work with co workers on our farm and the heat detection rate was not optimal because important observations were often not shared. [Nbsp] We are very excited about SMARTBOW because the system has an accuracy of 90% or even 100%! That's more than convincing.
Also the health monitoring is an absolute profit! SMARTBOW recognizes all sick cows, or the system alerts already before the onset of the disease, it recognizes the behavioral changes perfectly, be it for example an inflammation of the udder or a claw.
With SMARTBOW we were able to test various treatment methods and were able to determine the best way to recover the cow by means of the ruminants. So our cows start to eat faster and get better faster!
With the real-time cow localization we are very satisfied as well! In the past, cows often had to be searched for 20-30 minutes in the herd, so the system offers absolute time savings.
