Information on our system's security

Here are some frequently requested key facts regarding our system’s security.
Safe for your animals

Safety of the smaXtec bolus

  • The bolus has been developed with vets and research institutes and has no impact on the cow.
  • The bolus remains in the rumen after administration, due to its own weight. The cow doesn’t regurgitate or digest the bolus.
  • All materials used to manufacture the bolus are safe. Each bolus is reinforced with a steel protective cover and every effort has been made to create a particularly safe system.
  • The bolus is certified by DLG (German Agricultural Association), in full compliance with CE-standards and has also been admitted by the FDA that is known for its rigorous examinations. The safety has also been confirmed by various institutes (e.g. ABCERT).
  • In addition to the numerous approvals and certifications, experience with more than 150,000 boluses in use also proves that there is no negative impact on the animals.
  • There will be no interferences with magnets or other digital systems on the farm.
  • To ensure biosecurity, boluses are not reused in other animals.
  • We are members of various recycling projects. In countries where this is not the case, we take back the boluses and recycle them properly.
Rumen sensors do not affect or influence the animal according to current knowledge.

Data security and protection

Everything about your data

  • The measured cow data is saved on the bolus up to 6 days until they are read out and transmitted. Even when a problem with data transmission occurs, e.g. in case of a power failure, your data will not be lost.
  • Data are saved in the cloud. From our point of view, a cloud-based system is the most advantageous solution: You automatically benefit from updates, we can support you the best way possible and you can make optimum use of your data by sharing it with others.
  • Data is saved in the EU and is in compliance with the GDPR. We only grant other people access to your cow data with your permission – e.g. when you share your data with smaXtec users such as your vets or employees, or when using the option to integrate smaXtec into your herd management system.
  • We also take the protection of your personal data seriously. Find further information in our privacy policy.
