smaXtec installation
on your dairy farm

We have developed the system in a way that it is very easy to install and handle. In addition, our customer support team is always there to help you: After implementing the system, they will proactively call you and help you integrate the system in your daily routines. Once you’ve familiarised with the system, our team with agricultural and technical experts is of course also at your disposal and will be happy to answer your questions.
Step 01 / 05

Arrange a consultation

In a consultation meeting, you’ll learn about the smaXtec system and discuss how it can be implemented on your farm.

Step 02 / 05

Selection of devices

Our sales and customer support team will determine the right number of devices with you. This way, we ensure that sensor data is read out continuously and you always access the latest information about your herd.

Step 03 / 05

On-site installation

A member of the smaXtec team will do all necessary preparations with you. He or she will install the read-out devices, support you with bolus administration and sets up your smaXtec account. Afterwards, you can already access your cow data.

Step 04 / 05

Introduction by customer support

After installation, our customer support team will call you a few times to introduce you to the different functions of the smaXtec system. You will adjust settings according to your needs and clarify all open questions.

Step 05 / 05

Always happy to support you

Of course, the customer support team will further accompany you when the first phase with smaXtec is over. Whenever you have questions, you can get in touch with us via email, phone or directly in the smaXtec software. Our team is looking forward to supporting you and will ensure that you make best possible use of your smaXtec system.

What our happy
customers say

Paul Doble
Great Britain, 95 COWS
I use smaXtec as an early warning system, to pick up issues early, take preventive measures and reduce use of antibiotics.
Dairy Farm Heil
Austria, 54 COWS
The smaXtec calving detection works 95% of the time, if not more, at our farm. Additionally, the calving interval has decreased by 15 days.
Quintrell Jerseys
Great Britain, 300 COWS
During calving and AI time, the system is invaluable, especially the notifications on my phone. With smaXtec, it’s like having an extra person watching the cows. It has reduced stress – on us and the cows!
Stork GbR
Germany, 80 COWS
Since implementing the system, we detected various diseases and we were able to reduce our somatic cell count to less than 90.000.
Dairy Farm Brandtner
Austria, 60 COWS
We save time as we do not need to regularly take temperature in fresh cows anymore. Not having to take temperature manually is really convenient.
Jünck-Brun GbR
Germany, 280 COWS
We had fertility issues on our farm. Since using smaXtec, we detect every heat!
Stefan Schrottner
Austria, 80 COWS
smaXtec is a system that can do pretty much everything: calving and heat detection, as well as monitoring important aspects of animal health. No other system informs you as early as smaXtec.
Smaxtec Reference Schrottner
Finja Tangermann
Germany, 160 COWS
The smaXtec system has many advantages for us: It helps us to increase revenue, improve key figures and make better usage of our working time. Additionally, smaXtec enables us to have healthier cows on our farm.

FAQs

Advantages of the smaXtec bolus technology

To make sure that using smaXtec is as easy as possible for you, we offer integrations with many common herd managements programmes. Check here if an integration with your system is already available.
Definitely. Mastitis can be detected at an early stage based on an increased somatic cell count, but numerous other diseases such as pneumonia, retained placenta or influenza can only be detected early with continuous inner body temperature measurement. Additionally, smaXtec delivers further vital information such as calving detection and precise oestrus alerts, including a recommended insemination time.
Many customers use smaXtec on pasture. We developed a specific algorithm for oestrues detection on pasture, and all other functions (calving detection, health and feeding monitoring) work just as in the freestall-barn. Depending on how long your cows are on pasture, we offer different solutions. If cows are on pasture on a long-term, we offer solar-powered read-out devices. Get in touch with us and we will prepare a non-binding offer based on your specific needs.
Of course. The bolus technology has been developed carefully with veterinarians and technical experts. It complies to all necessary standards and has been tested and certified to be rumen fluid resistant by DLG (German Agricultural Association). There is no risk of interference with magnets or other digital systems in the barn.

The radiation of boluses is minimal. smaXtec boluses use a very low frequency, comparable to a garage door opener, and has no impact on animals or humans.
Yes, smaXtec is suitable for organic farms. Numerous dairy farms already use the bolus technology. Dr. Georg Eckert from ABCERT, a certification institute for organic operators, confirms that bolus technology can be used on organic farms in this interview.

Great health monitoring with earliest possible disease detection is particularly interesting for organic farms. The earlier diseases are detected, the easier it is to comply with the considerably stricter regulations concerning medication.
The bolus remains inside the cow for a lifetime. It remains in the same position in the reticulum due to its own weight, and is neither regurgitated nor digested.
You can see how the system works on a live farm at a reference farm close to you. Additionally, many research institutes use the system and are happy to show visitors. Get in touch with us so we can arrange a visit or connect you with a farmer nearby.
