Select Sires announced that it is the exclusive supplier in North America of the CowManager system, developed by Agis Automatisering. This simple, comprehensive herd monitoring system uses a revolutionary ear tag to measure indicators of fertility, health, rumination and eating behavior to provide dairy producers with powerful management information for their entire herd.
CowManager includes three modules: fertility, health and nutrition. The system reliably detects heats, provides early detection of sickness through ear temperature and measures the number of minutes spent eating and ruminating. The system also includes "Find My Cow," an innovative application that locates cows on the alert list as you walk behind them. CowManager is easy to install, consisting of solid state equipment that is covered by a five-year warranty. A multi-view option allows consultants, including Select Reproductive Solutions (SRS) specialists, to review data and troubleshoot potential issues. All data from the CowManager system can also be viewed from a smartphone or tablet.
