Healthy cows are one of the most important things that we strive for. Healthy cows are more sustainable and productive and require less attention. Therefore we want to spend our time as efficiently as possible and spend it with cows that really need attention. But how do we find these cows?
Finding cows requiring attention is based on different factors depending on the type of attention. A visual check in combination with various parameters in Lely T4C leads to finding the cows that need attention. But how efficient would it be to combine all available sensor information on a farm into one single attention? No longer any need to check the different reports and parameters: just a glance at a single attention report. And that is what ‘Health Attentions’ is all about.
How does it work?
A health attention is based on the combination of all available robot sensor data. Whether working with a Lely Astronaut A2, A3 (Next), A4 or A5 all available sensors contribute to an algorithm analysis of all available and relevant sensor data. The algorithm calculates a score. If the score is above 10, a health attention is given and the cow appears on the health attention list in InHerd.
In the Today tool, in Lely T4C InHerd, the Health Attentions are shown on one clear single screen. In this overview you see the most important parameters contributing to the health attention for a certain cow at a glance: for example, a drop in milk, conductivity deviation, milk temperature deviation and to what extent they contribute to the score. In addition, you can go directly to the cow card and enter a routing or a health treatment. So, with this new feature you can make full use of all sensor data available in combination with the practical use of Lely T4C InHerd.
What do you gain?
You have only one report showing you the cows requiring attention. Because all relevant robot sensor data is combined into one report, there is no longer any need to check various reports, thus increasing your efficiency. The sensor data is translated into practical information, enabling you to check, act and improve quickly and precisely for those cows that really need attention. Finally, this safeguards keeping your cows healthy.
