Herd Navigator™

Herd Navigator™ is an advanced analysis system which identifies every milking cow in need of special attention, and gives you clear information on what to do. Early and specific attention alerts enable fast action: improving production efficiency, profitability, animal welfare and food safety.

Herd Navigator dramatically improves three key factors in your milk production:

  • Reproduction
  • Mastitis detection
  • Ketosis detection

 Herd Navigator™ features

  • Automatic milk sampling during milking, and analysis of specific milk indicators.
  • It analyses four parameters specific for mastitis, reproduction, metabolic disorders, and feed protein balance.
  • Identifies cows in need of special attention – for reproduction, health, feeding or animal welfare.
  • It recommends action plans to improve the cow’s condition.
  • It enables fast action before a cow shows any clinical signs of disease.
  • Automatic heat detection finds even silent heats, with the “gold standard” indicator progesterone.
  • It improves efficiency in daily tasks, and reduces time and effort in routine work.
