Since the installation of the smaXtec system a lot has improved on Martin Niederleitner’s farm in Austria. “Thanks to smaXtec I have reliable control of retained placentas (temperature, drinking behavior, activity) and better heat detection”, says Martin Niederleitner. The heat and calving detection makes the farmer’s life so much easier. As an example, he mentioned getting up in the night – due to smaXtec it is no longer necessary to check every night if a cow is calving. A glance at his smartphone is enough to keep an eye on the situation.
