Health monitoring: I spy with my little eye
The total cost of ketosis is $289 / €262 per case
However, according to the scientists, the actual costs are even higher because ketosis leads to a demonstrably increased risk of uterine inflammation and abomasum displacement. If everything is added together, the total cost per ketosis case comes to $289 (€262). This can be broken down to 41% due to the costs of ketosis itself (the €106 per case), 33% due to higher uterine inflammation and 26% as a result of higher incidence of abomasum displacement.
Save $2.890 / €2,620 per year
With Nedap CowControl, you can recognise ketosis early because the Nedap SmartTag ‘sees’ that something is wrong with the cow before you notice it. In practice, a reduction in ketosis cases from 30 to 25% per year is fully achievable. Measured against the costs of ketosis of €262 per case as described above, this represents a saving of €2,620 per year on a herd of 200 cows!Learn more about Nedap CowControl ›
