GEA CowScout

Heat Detection, Health Monitoring and Cow Positioning

CowScout reliably tells you when your cows are ready for insemination. Convenient alert functions ensure that you never miss an activity report. A sensor monitors the cow‘s movement at all times. CowScout shows you any periods of high activity for each individual animal and, if you wish, even its live location. This gives you an excellent basis for quick reactions and successful fertility and health management!

Heat detection

CowScout works 24/7 to monitor cow activity by identifying neck movements, such as sniffing and chin resting that indicate if a cow is in heat. With this real-time data, cows in heat can be properly identified, allowing for improved insemination results, higher pregnancy rates, shorter calving intervals and reduced insemination costs – all with lower labor inputs.

Keeping feeding under control

Optimize both fertility management and feeding management for your herd: Besides heat detection, the CowScout neck tag detects specific movement patterns related to forage intake, recording the time individual cows spend eating. Changes in eating and rumination behavior as well as measurements of activity versus inactivity, may indicate potential health problems. The alert function tells you immediately if the cow is exhibiting feeding or health problems so that you can react quickly and appropriately. The best basis for a hearty appetite and long-term high performance!
