smaXtec testimonial: Carsten Braack, Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, 550 cows
Carsten Braack has been using smaXtec on his dairy farm in Schleswig-Holstein for several months and has seen very good results and great time-savings. “smaXtec offers great support by making dairy farming more sustainable, improving animal health, and reducing antibiotics usage. This brings us productive and resilient cows which is a major benefit for our farm”, he explains.
He is very impressed with smaXtec’s continuous measurement of inner body temperature – a big plus around calving: “In the past, we had problems with milk fever. Now, we can give calcium to these animals in good time if they need it, because we can see a drop in temperature in the curve diagram very quickly. As a result, we don’t have animals with milk fever anymore. Measuring the temperature directly inside the cow gives very quick and precise results which saves us time, as well.”
Auch nach der Abkalbung behält Carsten Braack anhand der Kurvendiagramme die Tiere genau im Auge: „Mit der Temperaturkurve und der Wiederkaukurve sehen wir in den Tagen nach der Geburt sehr genau, wie gut die Tiere starten und können bei Bedarf entsprechend handeln.“
