Afimilk Silent Herdsman is a 24/7 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.
How does it work?
Each cow is fitted with a smart neck collar, which monitors its heat expression and health round-the-clock and transmits the data wirelessly to your PC, laptop, mobile or tablet.
Our sophisticated software lets you track each individual cow onscreen in real time — and alerts you to any changes associated with the onset of heat and/or the health of the animal.
You’ll be sent an email immediately to ensure no vital opportunities are missed. The result? Optimum fertilization times, earlier health interventions and maximum milking efficiency.
There’s no impact on your working routine, so things can carry on exactly as normal. Plus the system still works even if you don’t have an internet connection.
And with my Silent Herdsman putting the herd in the palm of your hand too, it’s even easier to increase your yield when you’re not in the field.
