“You don’t want to get busier on your farm”
“Last night I got a notification at 9 o’clock that a cow has a possible health issue. So I went out and saw that she was indeed not well. I brought her in and treated her for grass tetany. Now I don’t know if she ever had grass tetany or not, but in the morning she was 100% fit again. Without the early alert I could have a cow down in the field this morning or maybe a dead cow”, Brian explains.

This way their solutions are powered by Nedap technology. “With this technology, the cows wear CowScout tags that track their heat activity, eating, rumination and inactive behavior. Evan shows how the data is presented: “It’s on our phones and on our PCs. So it just made our farm get a lot closer to us and we can keep track of the health of our cows.”
