Nedap CowControl with Cow Locating

Nedap CowControl with Cow Locating can help many farmers achieve cost savings by streamlining everyday tasks and reducing costs. Using an active monitoring system (AMS) tag, a cow’s location and movements can be tracked in real-time on mobile devices.

Cow Locating can help counter rising labor costs and minimize unpaid labor by reducing the amount of time that daily animal checks require. A lot of variables impact how much time dairy farmers spend on animal health checks in barns and free stalls each morning, but Cow Locating has cut time requirements in half for some producers. AMS generates lists of animals in need of health checks, and Cow Locating enables you to find those cows’ exact locations with one simple click.
