Proactive cow management: stay connected to what you care about!

Activity sensors, the 24/7 eye on your herd.
In management positions you need to be able to keep the ball rolling, even when you believe there are not enough hours in a day to do a good job. Now imagine, besides having your employees to manage, you also need to manage an entire herd of cows, day and night. With the herd sizes increasing, managing the individual cow is a challenge. You can consider hiring a(n) (extra) herdsperson, but what if you could manage your herd just from your smartphone, 24/7?

Work smart and stay connected for healthy cows. 
New technology does not only bring opportunities to humans, but also to cows. Where the Fitbit and the Apple Watch are the way to healthier lives for humans, activity monitoring is the way to healthier cows for producers. It has been designed to collect, manage and process the enormous amount of data about a cow’s health status. Activity sensors can pick up more information than the human eye.

“It is a 24-hour walking man around the cows. It doesn’t miss a thing.”
Whitehall Farm, United Kingdom

Where most cow monitoring systems only focus on heat detection, CowManager puts its focus on the overall health status. The activity tracker in CowManager’s ear sensor measures activity and resting time (high – low), rumination and eating (based on jaw and ear movement) and ear temperature. This revolutionary ear sensor technology provides accurate information to monitor your cows’ fertility, health, nutrition and location 24/7 in any situation, regardless of farm size.

“You cannot hire somebody who does as much in 24 hours as CowManager does.”
Baas Dairy, Canada

With the software dairy farmers can observe every individual cow right there on their smartphone wherever they are. A notification is sent when a cow needs special attention, e.g. when a cow is in heat or sick. It is an easy way to stay connected to what is happening in the barn.

“To be able to look up any cow, at any time, on my phone and make decisions about her in real time when I am at cow side or at home has been very beneficial to me.” 
Michael Johnson, Trailside Holsteins, US


The better you know how your animals feel, the better equipped you are to take the right action at the right time. Adequate intervention will result in higher pregnancy rates, improved milk production, a better health status, and fewer cow losses.

CowManager is a complete and user-friendly plug-and-play system thatis very easy to install. It is compatible with farm management systems, providing producers a quick overview of all cow data enabling them to make faster and more educated decisions. All this data is visualized in easy to understand graphs and tables and can be downloaded in reports, which can be used for reproductive management and vet checks.

“With CowManager we have everything under control.”

Gerard Griffioen, founder of CowManager and dairy producer himself, explains the benefits of cow management technology in an interview, taken at the World Dairy Expo.

“Manage your cows like it’s the 21st century. Some of the most successful companies just make life easier and that’s why they succeed.”
Christopher Olson from Brookside Dairy Inc, US
