The benefits of Nedap CowControl

Nedap CowControl™  is the all-in-one dairy herd monitoring and management system. 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?

Heat Detection

Fertility is critical to a farm’s success. Heat detection results that don’t meet your goals turn in to more time spent tracking, sorting and breeding cows, in addition to increased semen costs and lost time for you and your employees.

The worst-case scenario could be culling a cow due to reproductive problems. With herd sizes increasing daily and milk production on the rise, identifying cows in heat is more difficult and costly than ever.

Carlson Dairy in Pennock, MN reports an increase in pregnancy rate from 25% to 33%, with heifers calving earlier, since using Nedap Heat Detection. With an 1800-cow herd, the cost savings quickly add up.

Health Monitoring

With farm scale increases on the rise, being able to monitor each animal is becoming increasingly more difficult. When herd managers and farm employees are stretched too thin, individual cow attention becomes more challenging. If you are not able to monitor your cows 24/7, you may be missing key critical cow health problems on your farm.

Nedap collars provide real-time insights on cow and herd health, enabling you to respond to a cow’s needs instantly. Don Niles of Dairy Dreams in Casco, WI: “Thanks to the health attentions, we can now spot cows with deviant behavior much faster and put them on a checklist. This way we can hopefully do something sooner to save those cows.”

Labour Savings

Increased labor costs and availability are causing dairy farms to do more with fewer employees. This means there are less employees to identify areas of concern.

Additionally, finding the right employees for the work on your dairy farm is not easy nowadays. The ideal combination of qualified, motivated and at the same time affordable staff sometimes seems to be inoperable.

“The big benefit of Cow Locating is time management,” says Darin Strauss of Majestic Crossing Dairy in Sheboygan Falls, WI. “It helps me get the most out of my staff and my team in a timely and efficient manner. Nedap CowControl is all about being efficient with your labor force.”
