Allflex Livestock Intelligence dairy cow monitoring solutions combine our market-leading cow monitoring technology, proven for more than 10 years on millions of cows, with our livestock identification technology used on hundreds of millions of cows worldwide. Featuring unmatched heat detection accuracy and real-time reproduction, health and group monitoring, our solutions are a game-changer for New Zealand farmers. Offering benefits across the three pillars of dairy management – reproduction, health and nutrition – our monitoring solutions delivers a fast return on investment and provide farmers with an improved work-life balance.
Allflex Livestock Intelligence health monitoring applications empower dairy farmers to detect developing health issues in the transition period such as ketosis, DA, metritis and mastitis early on, before they show up in milk or as a serious metabolic problem, and often well before production drops or clinical signs appear. They also enable farmers to quickly evaluate response to veterinary treatments, for the best-possible recovery and treatment cost-effectiveness. Using our applications, dairy farmers can make informed and timely decisions regarding intervention and treatment, enabling pre-emptive actions that help avoid deterioration, reduce treatment costs, and reduce or prevent impact on milk production, and lowering the mortality rate.
Real-time detection and alerts provide actionable insight into individual cows’ health at high-risk times, including before, during and immediately after calving, enabling timely intervention that can save money and provide peace of mind. Our health monitoring applications also help farmers streamline their fresh cow protocol and minimize disruption to fresh cows’ peace by enabling them to identify and care for those cows that need additional attention.
Our health monitoring applications include Health Report, Fresh Cow Report, Animals to Inspect Report, Distress Report, and Distress Alerts.
Allflex Livestock Intelligence reproduction monitoring applications eliminate the guesswork and inconsistency of evaluating the reproductive status of every individual heifer and cow. Our applications empower dairy farmers to optimize conception rates, while reducing skilled labor requirements and saving time.
Leveraging behavior monitoring based on activity, rumination, eating and other proprietary key cow behaviors, our reproduction monitoring applications provide unmatched heat detection accuracy, including detection of weak heat signs, while minimizing false positives. They deliver actionable insight in real time, with precise insemination timing guidance.
Using our applications, dairy farmers can reduce the calving interval, while reducing or eliminating dependency on reproductive hormones. With fewer days open, farmers can improve milk production as well as the genetic quality of their herd.
Our reproduction monitoring applications include Cows in Heat (estrus) Report, Cows with Irregular Heat Report, Suspected for Abortion Report, and Anestrous Cows Report.
Allflex Livestock Intelligence group monitoring applications provide dairy farmers with timely and actionable insight that enables optimized decision-making for herd-wide health, wellbeing and productivity. Varied reports that reveal trends within groups enable farmers to make timely decisions relating to wellbeing, nutrition, and heat abatement, and other farm management strategies.
Farmers can improve their nutrition strategy by quickly understanding how their cows react to ration changes, including subtle adjustments such as new batches, new suppliers, a toxin or feed issue, and ratio modifications. The effects of ration adjustments can be detected in as little as a few hours, enabling informed nutrition decisions that optimize herd health, reproduction, and milk productivity. Visualization of long-term trends spanning several months provides nutritionists with an additional perspective for evaluating rations and changes.
Farmers can also understand the effects on their cows’ wellbeing of environmental factors such as extremely hot weather, lack of water, wet bedding, over-population, wind, and dogs, and of changes to grouping, equipment and staffing. This enables informed decisions to address immediate issues, activate and fine-tune heat abatement strategies, and develop plans to prevent or minimize future problems.
