The Qwes cow-recognition system has different tags, each of which has its own focus. Choose the tag that best fits in with your farm, wishes and goals.
Identification is essential for automated milking
The Qwes ISO ID is a tag specifically created for identification. This means, that each cow is being identified and recognized in the robot and all other Lely peripherals that require identification. This is the most basic type of tag which is in our portfolio.
To make sure the insemination timing is perfect!
With the Qwes ISO LD neck you have ISO identification inside the robot but the heat activities are being read out by an antenna over a longer distance. Sniffing and chin resting - neck movements that indicate heat - are effortlessly detected by the ISO LD. Day and night. The data is available immediately (RealTime) via long-range data transfer. The antenna receives the signals of read out up to 75 meters in one direction.
Measuring heat and health at both individual and herd level
The Qwes ISO-LD Plus tag gives you ISO identification, heat detection, and sends health notifications based on parameters like activity and inactivity, eating and rumination for individual cows as well as the herd. The data is available immediately (RealTime) via long-range data transfer. The antenna receives read-out signals of up to 75 meters in one direction.
The combination of rumination data and other sensors: the best basis for reproduction
Besides identification, this option provides information on rumination activity, overall activity and the health status of individual cows, as well as that of the dairy herd as a whole. The data are sent remotely by radio frequency. As a result you can monitor your dairy cows, heifers and dry cows 24 hours a day.
Cow location, real-time grazing and rumination monitoring for heat and health care
As well as measuring activity and grazing, this tag offers data on rumination behaviour by individual cow. This gives you an insight into the optimum insemination time for each cow and shows the cow’s current health status. The tag also comes with the option to add the Lely Cow Locator function, making responding to cows that need attention or fetching easier and quicker than ever.
