With CowManager, you know all you need to know about your animals’ fertility, health and nutrition 24/7. Even when you’re not there.
CowManager is a revolutionary ear sensor technology for dairy farmers. It provides accurate information about your herd’s fertility, health and nutritional status.

The sensor device fits around an “840”, or official animal identification RFID tag; both can be placed in your cow’s ear in a single action.
CowManager is a complete plug-and-play system that is compatible with your farm management system. The data transmitted by the sensors is collected by (solar) routers that can be installed in your barns, pastures or feed lots. A coordinating device connected to your computer ensures optimal data flow.
CowManager monitors your herd 24/7 in any situation, regardless of farm size. It’s the ultimate tool for continuously monitoring your cows’ fertility, health and nutrition and receiving real-time information on your smartphone and/or other devices. Through updates every 8 weeks to pc-application and mobile app, CowManager is always equipped with the latest developments.
SEEING IS BELIEVING PACKAGE
It measures your cows fertility, health and nutritional status. With impressive accuracy.
Maximized profits with timely insemination
For years, dairy operations have depended on timely and efficient breeding in order to maximize profit. The biggest challenge dairy farms face in this area is ‘heat detection’, or knowing when an individual cow goes into heat.
CowManager is the most accurate heat detection system on the market. It will provide reliable data about heat intensity and heat stage. By combining these alerts with cow data, CowManager provides valuable insights into the cycles of your individual cows. All the information you need for maximizing heat detection.

Early disease detection based on individual cow behaviour
The key to success in all transition and fresh cow programs is to keep cows healthy. The transition period is also when a cow’s peak for lactation will be determined. CowManager will alert you immediately whenever a single cow is not eating or ruminating. The resulting early intervention will save you money on labor and antibiotics and reduces milk drops.
CowManager is also an outstanding tool for monitoring the recovery of sick cows, providing you with ongoing insights into substandard cow behavior and ear temperature.

Improved health and milk production with balanced eating and rumination
Keeping your cows eating and ruminating is key to maintaining their health and maximizing milk production. Any decline in this area may be an early indicator of health issues, and possible extra costs.
With CowManager, you will have accurate measurements of the number of minutes each cow spends eating and ruminating. With this insight into the eating behavior of individual cows, management groups and the entire herd, you will know exactly how to ration your herd. CowManager is also an excellent tool for monitoring your cows’ eating behavior in the transition period.
"Whenever I change the ration, I always keep an eye on my group overview of the nutrition module.”
