“The big benefit of Cow Locating is time management,” says Darin. “It helps me get the most out of my staff and my team in a timely and efficient manner. Cow Locating is all about being efficient with your labor force.”
Today, Majestic Crossing Dairy uses Cow Location to pinpoint cows’ exact locations. A “SmartTag” worn by the animal identifies the cow in the robot and transmits location and activity data. The result? Real-time insights on cow and herd health, fertility and the ability to respond to a cow’s needs instantly.
“Before Cow Locating, it probably took an hour and a half,” says Darin. “Now it takes about 45 minutes, mainly due to cow location. We are able to go from point A to point B, find the cows quickly and get the job done.”
Using real-time cow location and health information, Majestic Crossing Dairy has achieved operational efficiencies and created a better environment for their cows.Learn more about Cow Locating ›
