Afimilk Silent Herdsman

Afimilk Silent Herdsman is a 24x7 monitoring system for cows and heifers based on a revolutionary neck mounted tag (collar). Afimilk Silent Herdsman is simple to install, operate and maintain and does not require anything beyond the basic knowledge of a PC system. Afimilk Silent Herdsman continually monitors a cow’s activity and automatically detects changes in normal behaviour, indicating patterns related to oestrus, eating and rumination.

It identifies the cow’s cycle, eliminating the need for costly human observations or the use of labour intensive alternatives. The result is a substantial increase in the successful identification of cows in oestrus, and those with the early onset of illness. To prolong the collar’s battery life, Afimilk Silent Herdsman flags an alert only when cows enter their critical states. Fertility, milk yield and operational efficiency are therefore maximised.
