Fully responsive Velos interface

The Velos interface (website) is now fully responsive. Velos adjusts all screens to the used device (PC, tablet, smartphone) automatically. This means all functionality is available on all devices. The mobile interface of Velos is no longer used. Since the software is responsive, this is no longer necessary.

Smart tables

From the 2016.2 update the tables are sortable. When clicking on the icon, the data in the table can be sorted from high to low, or from low to high. Furthermore, when checking tables, the animal data can directly be opened. Click on a blue arrow icon to see the individual animal data  which slides directly into the same screen.

Smarttag Neck (I)FERP: new health parameters and advanced Group Monitoring

The Smarttag Neck has been expanded with a number of unique and valuable features. Within Health Management, unique parameters have been added. Group Monitoring has been expanded with various insights.

Rumination, Inactive and other active

The new measurements rumination, time inactive and time being active provide additional data for the health and management module of Velos. The whole 24 hour time budget of the dairy cow is measured, leading to more insight and large improvements in the health attention algorithms.

Advanced group day totals

On group level these measurements give the farmer more insight in the feed/feeding management on the farm. The herdresponse on ration changes can be seen when checking the eating and rumination times. This gives the farmer a real hands on tool to work with and steer towards an optimal ration.

Group Eating Pattern

The new 48 hour graph shows the farmer how many cows ate at which particular time of the day. Farmer/personnel actions and their effect on the entire herd are visible, giving the farmer the opportunity to optimize his feed management.
