  • Jan van Vliet Jan van Vliet United States
    A little over 12 months ago, Jan Van Vliet tried CowManager through the Seeing is Believing trial. Initially putting CowManager ear tag sensors on 50 cows, Jan saw the benefits of the electronic herd health monitoring system right away.

    “Before CowManager we spent a lot of time every day in the fresh pen looking at all the cows. With CowManager we now go directly to the cows that need our attention, instead of rolling through the entire group. CowManager lets us be more proactive and head off problems before cows get really sick,” said Jan.

    “When we receive an alert that a cow is not “acting” normally we drench her right away. Previously we would not have seen cows like this begin to struggle because there are no outward signs. With CowManager it’s identified early, and we are able to fight off illness and keep them producing. You can find sick cows without CowManager, but it’s not as easy, and it’s usually too late. Our recovery rate from sickness is higher, and our culling rate is down because of CowManager."

    "CowManager makes us more efficient and saves us time. It has reduced our labor needs for monitoring fresh cows, which allows us to do other things on the farm. We believe CowManager has already paid for itself. We only wish we had installed it sooner.” - Jan Van Vliet, Van Vliet Dairy

    Marcus Hollmann, nutritionist and consultant for Summit Farms (Wisconsin, USA) about the Nutrition module: “I really like the outstanding graphs. They capture not only the snapshot of the herd today, but also let me view changes over time very quickly, comparing eating and rumination times. CowManager is a tool in our toolbox to respond quickly, finetune the cows’ diet and essentially make the dairy more profitable.”

  • Clayview Dairy, MN, USA Clayview Dairy, MN, USA United States
    Maricarmen and Norberto are the operations manager and herdmanager of Clayview Dairy, WI, USA. The dairy has 1.400 cows.

    Maricarmen:
    “CowManager has helped me in learning more about the life span of a dairy cow. Having no veterinarian experience about the behavior of an animal. I can understand their behavioral pattern better, such as eating time. Therefore I feel I can contribute more to the decision making as it makes it much easier for us to be able to make decisions without having any regrets in the future.”

  • Cor Veldhuisen Cor Veldhuisen Netherlands
    Melkveehouder Cor Veldhuisen runt samen met zijn vrouw en zoon een melkveebedrijf met 130 melkkoeien in Nigtevecht (Utrecht): “We hebben nu CowManager twee jaar. We hebben voor CowManager gekozen omdat we het idee hadden dat met name door de temperatuurmeting via het oor de beste manier is om te kunnen monitoren of een koe gezond is. Vroeger pakte je ook zelf het oor van een koe beet om te voelen of die koud of warm was”.

    Ook zijn zoon, Jaco Veldhuisen, is enthousiast over de mogelijkheden van CowManager en de verbeteringen die op het bedrijf te zien zijn: “Ik kijk regelmatig op mijn app van hoe het zit en welke koeien tochtig zijn of welke een gezondheidsmelding hebben. Er zijn geen koeien meer die je mist”.

    Op het bedrijf worden de koeien door Cor Veldhuisen zelf geïnsemineerd, aan de hand van de tochtmeldingen van CowManager. Op de applicatie van CowManager is te zien hoelang een koe al tochtig is, op die manier kun je het optimale inseminatietijdstip bepalen. Dit heeft ook effect op de tussenkalftijd verteld Cor Veldhuisen: “Ik ben van 430 dagen tussenkalftijd gezakt naar 390. Dat is helemaal toe te schrijven aan sensoren”.

    CowManager geeft niet alleen tochtmeldingen maar ook gezondheidsmeldingen. Dit ervaarde Cor Veldhuisen afgelopen zomer, toen er van kuil veranderd moest worden. Van de een op de andere dag ontving hij allemaal gezondheidsmeldingen en bleken alle koeien last te hebben van pensverzuring: “Het eerste wat je dan doet als je dat ziet, is gelijk hooi voeren. Ik denk zeker, door sensoren, dat we er op tijd bij waren”.

    Cor Veldhuisen is zeer te spreken over CowManager en de service: “Als er wat aan hand is met een kapotte sensor, je meldt het en je krijgt een nieuwe toegestuurd. In ons geval werkt het en ik denk dat we het snel terugverdiend hebben. En het is gewoon een stuk bedrijfsgemak”.
