Health

Health

Your herd's health status

Animal health is key to your dairy farm’s productivity and economic efficiency. Only healthy cows will be high performing and deliver the desired results.

The earlier you detect health problems, the earlier you can react and reduce severe courses of diseases on your farm.

Thanks to the continuous measurement of inner body temperature, smaXtec offers an outstanding early disease detection system. Why? As soon as the immune system reacts to germs or stress, body temperature changes – long before signs become visible on the outside.

Combined with the other valuable smaXtec parameters rumination and activity levels, you monitor your cows’ health the best way possible.

Earliest possible detection of

Feverish conditions, for example mastitis, metritis, respiratory diseases or other infections

Metabolic diseases, such as ketosis and milk fever

Your benefits

  • Healthier cows.
  • Shorter disease
    durations.
  • Less antibiotics.

The system provides you with further valuable information on animal health

For optimal use, you can share data with your vet if you want to. In case of a treatment the vet doesn’t only get a brief snapshot, but can get an overview of the cow’s health status over a longer time.
  • Continuous monitoring of drinking behaviour indicates onset of diseases or issues with water provision
  • Activity data are useful, additional information to assess the cow’s health status
  • Thanks to the most accurate rumination measurement, you receive even deeper insights into your cows’ health
  • Heat stress is rapidly detected, enabling you to take measures at the right time
  • The combination of smaXtec health alerts often enables conclusions on the type of disease

Heat detection

Heat detection

What does heat detection mean?

Don’t miss heats anymore – thanks to the precise, reliable and automatic heat detection. This way, you know exactly when to inseminate a cow and improve the reproductive success on your farm.

Nowadays, dairy cows show shorter and weaker signs of heat, which additionally often takes place at night. Therefore, the risk of missing a heat is high, as the effort for observation is large and there are so many other things to do on the farm. Often, there is not enough staff to invest sufficient time in oestrus monitoring.

However, every missed heat is a cost factor. According to studies, the cost for missed heats is at 80 to 120 Euro.

Cow in estrus

smaXtec supports you in a way that this doesn’t happen to you: The smaXtec system detects heat for you and provides you with additional information on the ideal insemination time.

Your benefits

  • Identify ideal insemination time.
  • Inseminate at the right time.
  • Increase reproductive success.

How does smaXtec heat detection work?

smaXtec detects heats based on behavioural changes of your cows. The system analyses behaviour over a longer time and suggests an insemination time as soon as oestrus has been detected.

Thanks to the insemination window, you know exactly when insemination has the highest probability for success, at which time success probability is already reduced and at which time you shouldn’t inseminate the cow anymore.

No matter if in the free-stall barn or on pasture: smaXtec reliably supports you in detecting oestrus with specific algorithms for different types of husbandry.
Heat detection

Identify fertility issues rapidly

Digital, continuous heat detection has one more advantage: You are always aware of the current fertility status of a cow, and you see immediately if a cow’s cycle is suspicious and indicates fertility issues. This way, you can act rapidly and improve your cows’ fertility.

Calving alerts

Calving detection

What does calving detection mean?

With smaXtec you do not need to set an alarm at night to check if the cow is giving birth. You are informed upfront. This way, you take necessary preparations and support the cow if necessary.

With smaXtec you do not only monitor your cows’ health in the critical phase around birth, you are also informed before calving takes place. How it works? The change in body temperature is commonly and scientifically accepted as an indicator of imminent calving. Temperature decreases considerably when the calving process starts.

Based on this scientific finding, smaXtec detects calving early. You receive notifications 15 hours before calving on average, and have a good overview of your animals.

Your benefits

  • Be informed early.
  • Make preparations.
  • Support if necessary.
Calving detection advantages

How do you benefit from smaXtec's early calving detection?

Before calving

  • You are informed earlier and can take all necessary preparations
  • You can use the calving area efficiently
  • You will be informed, even when a calf is born earlier than expected
  • If necessary, you can take preventative measures, such as administering calcium boluses

Support during calving

  • If you already know that complications might occur you can inform the vet early, e.g. in case of malposition
  • This way you are ready to support cow and calf during the birth process if necessary
  • The right assistance will help to reduce the number of dead-born calves
  • Additionally, you can decrease the risk of retained placentas and uterine infections

After calving

  • Thanks to the additional health information you immediately know if any diseases occur in the critical period post-calving, e.g. if the cow suffers from milk fever
  • Proactive health management helps in improving fertility and reduce calving intervals

smaXtec calving detection is convenient!

The best thing about it? Calving detection is integrated in your smaXtec system. You have no additional work to detect calving, e.g. mount a sensor upfront, and you will be informed directly in the software.
ACTING EARLY WILL HELP YOU TO AVOID PRODUCTION LOSSES AND SAFEGUARD YOUR OUTCOMES!
