CowScout is a new technology that can anticipate when your cows are ready to be bred. It helps monitor a cow’s movement electronically through a sensor.  

The use of electronic heat detection on cows can shorten labour, enhance pregnancy rates, reduce days open and reduce the need for hormone therapies. CowScout shows peak activity times for each animal, as well as its current position if requested.

This provides you with a solid foundation for quick reactions and effective fertility and health management. The innovation helps to optimise fertility and feeding management for the cows. 

Besides heat detection, the CowScout neck tag detects specific movement patterns related to foraging, recording the time individual cows spend eating. It also detects the changes in the eating and rumination behaviour of herds and measures moments of activity and inactivity, which helps in indicating potential health problems. 

The alert function notifies you right away if the cow is having eating or health issues, allowing you to react swiftly and effectively, which is the foundation of sustained high performance. Also, the CowScout leg tag continually monitors five of a cow’s daily behaviours: standing time, lying time, walking time, stand-up count and step count.
