Dairy News Australia - - MACHINERY & PRODUCTS -

ALLFLEX HAS re­leased SenseTime — a cow mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem that de­liv­ers datadriven in­for­ma­tion on the re­pro­duc­tive, health, nu­tri­tional and well­be­ing sta­tus of herds. SenseTime com­bines cow mon­i­tor­ing tech­nol­ogy de­signed by Allflex-owned SCR, which the com­pany says has been used for more than 10 years on over 5 mil­lion cows, with Allflex’s live­stock iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy. SenseTime is the first cow mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem that al­lows farm­ers to use ei­ther ear tags or neck tags, ac­cord­ing to their pref­er­ence. The cSense Flex (neck) tags are based on the SCR neck tags al­ready in use on thou­sands of farms world­wide, and the eSense Flex (ear) tags are the new­est and most ad­vanced ear tags on the mar­ket. Allflex says the ear tags are light­weight, durable and sim­ple to in­stall. The com­pany says they have a high re­ten­tion rate and de­liver a high re­turn on in­vest­ment. SenseTime also of­fers farm­ers busi­ness flex­i­bil­ity, with a choice of ap­pli­ca­tion plan lev­els (Starter, Ad­vanced, or Pre­mium), a choice of pay­ment op­tions (up­front or monthly sub­scrip­tion), and com­pat­i­bil­ity with mul­ti­ple user de­vices (PC, mo­bile phone, tablet, or ded­i­cated SenseTime Panel). All op­tions can be ex­panded or changed to fit evolv­ing needs. The sys­tem has con­ve­nient sin­gle-box plug and play in­stal­la­tion, easy up­grades, sim­ple scal­a­bil­ity, and in­te­gra­tion with herd man­age­ment sys­tems. Mo­bile ac­cess and off­line op­er­a­tion en­able un­in­ter­rupted use from any­where, at any time. “Decades of lead­er­ship in an­i­mal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and heat and health mon­i­tor­ing in dairy cows gives Allflex deep in­sight into how to help farm­ers gain on­go­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity im­prove­ments and busi­ness growth,” said Allflex CEO Dr. Ste­fan Weiskopf. “With the next-gen­er­a­tion SenseTime solution we’re build­ing on the ex­pe­ri­ence gained from serv­ing thou­sands of farm­ers world­wide, to give them a pow­er­ful, flex­i­ble solution that meets their needs to­day, and long into the future.”
