It helps to maximize herd performance and farm efficiency by boosting reproduction results, cow health, labor efficiency and farm management. You know these are the keys to improve production and profitability. How do you want to take control?

Know your cow

Let your Smarttags show you more than the most expert eye can see.

By focusing on individual cow management, you can increase your herd’s performance and farm efficiency. Our advanced Smarttags make sure each cow is identified and keep track of her activity, signs of heat, behavior and position 24/7. This provides essential information on the reproduction, health, well-being, nutrition and location of individual cows and groups.

Control your herd

Let technology serve you instead of the other way around.

Nedap COWControl™ smartly turns this information into real-time and relevant alerts, to-do lists, reports and maps to manage and control your herd. They are user friendly presented on PC, tablet or smartphone and integrate with your current and future farm automation systems and management programs. You automatically focus on the right cow, at the right time, with the right treatment.

Improve your farm

Make data-driven decisions to improve your herd’s performance, farm management and bottom line.

With actions based on individual cow data, you can manage daily operations in a targeted, proactive and efficient manner. At the same time, you receive trends and insights on the behavior of your groups and entire herd to measure and evaluate the impact of housing conditions, feeding strategies and milking procedures on your herd’s performance. So you can continuously strive to improve.
