Change in feeding: Test the results with sensors
Figure 3 – Heifer production shows an increase with a mixed ration.
After the trial, the farmer felt positive about the effects he noticed. The sensor data showed him that the issues he had could be resolved through mixing his feed. The extra costs for mixing are lower than the anticipated benefits of the improved production. And this did not even include other benefits associated with higher lying times and better social behavior. All and all this shows how, using sensors, your cows can tell you if a management change is a real improvement or not.
