Stress from metabolic problems may decrease the cow’s resistance and compromise immune system function. If these diseases are not prevented, very costly consequences in the animals reproductive, milk production areas will occur. Many of these disorders do not stand alone the occurrence of one tends to lead to the risk of another compounding the overall cost.
All these disorders have a knock-on effect on fertility and it can take many months for the reproductive system to recover. Lets take a look at one of the more common disorders Ketosis which most commonly occurs in the first 2 weeks post calving and can be associated with significant economic losses.
HerdInsights, monitor each individual cows resting, grazing/feeding behaviours and their general activity levels as a result this ensures:
- All postpartum cows are examined daily during the time when they are most susceptible to disease
- Early intervention with the correct treatment to the correct diagnostics
HerdInsights has 100% focus on each individual cows feeding, resting and activity behaviours and by combining these metrics to generate an individual cows specific health index sends an alert directly to the farmers phone.
Each trait can be viewed and evaluated easily and simply on your phone or tablet. By isolating the cow you are able to give 100% focus on the individual animal and take a rectal temperature.
