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?
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.
Hany Abdelmalek at Taanayel Farms in Lebanon reports an increase in pregnancy rate, while spending less time on insemination and less use of hormones.
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. Dr. Izhar Ali of JK Dairies in Pakistan: “As a veterinarian, I can only treat sick animals if a cow shows clinical signs of disease. This system however detects a change in eating, rumination or inactive behavior of the cow two to three days before the first clinical signs and then puts the cow on the attention list.”
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.
Hany Abdelmalek at Taanayel Farms in Lebanon: “Before we start our working day, part of the work has already been done by CowControl. Thanks to the attention lists, we know exactly which cows are in heat or in a preliminary stage of illness. We then immediately check those animals or inseminate them, leaving us time to carry out other tasks down to the last detail, and this is reflected in the results. The pregnancy rate has increased, while we spend much less time on insemination and use less hormones.”
