The team at Moletech are continually looking to find and bring to market technologies to give farmers support and aid profitability. At present we are working with 5 major suppliers to offer systems to suit a range of needs. All of which are designed to keep the farmer up to notified with what’s happening on the farm.
Our systems provides alert for:
- Oestrus Heat Detection
- Temperature Measurement
- Calving Detection
- Drinking Cycles
- Heat Stress
- Health Issue Detection
- When an Oestrus event is detected, an alert is sent to the farmers phone, with an insemination window, to give a guide to the optimum time to serve
- Using a drop in temperature, the system is also able to detect when a cow is calving, giving a window of 6-18 hours, allowing time to move the cow to the calving area and monitor her accordingly.
- Health issues are detected using a rise or fall in temperature, drinking bouts and activity.
Health detection systems allow farmers to intervene early catching diseases before they can become severe; A reduced workload due to less cows being sick; reduced treatment costs and fewer medications being needed; And with all this keeping more milk in the tank.
SmaXtec is a Bolus (rumen) based system, to monitor oestrus (monitoring), calving events and health (detection system), located in the reticulum part of the rumen, giving the farmer constant updates on the individuals heat and health status in real time, via a phone App.
The (This) classic bolus (system) uses data from activity and temperature, to give (you) accurate information of when the cows are showing signs of Oestrus, Calving (heat) or health issues. The PH+ bolus is the next level of data collection, showing all of the above but also keeping track of the pH inside the rumen, which is a key indicator for Feed efficiency(,) and Ruminal Acidosis (health status and), giving you immediate insights into the effects of ration feeding.
HerdInsights is a multi-metric, cloud-based ‘Smart Collar’ for dairy cows which improves the efficiency of farm breeding programmes and reduces health care costs through early illness detection. This system boasts an impressive 96% heat detection rate, an overall pregnancy rate of 96% in nine weeks and six weeks in-calf rates increased by up to 82%.
The Uniqueness of this collar system compared to others, is that the algorithm looks at behavioural changes in the cow, rather than just activity. This gives more accurate heat detection. Health issues are detected using rumination and changes in activity levels
CowManager is a reusable ear tag sensor that fits on a standard EID. The CowManager ear tag measures and monitors each cows’ behaviours and will alert you of any abnormal behaviour for early detection. Cow manager uses algorithms based on the movement of the cow and also the movement of the ears to detect rumination. You have a router that collects the data from the ear tags and then the information gets passed to the mobile device/ computer. Cow manager offers the farmer: fertility, health and Nutrition alerts to keep the farmer in the know with what is going on when they aren’t with the cows.
Moocall offer a calving sensor which you place on the tail of the cow/heifer as she is nearing her (its) due date. This can provide calving detection alerts for real time calving events. The Moocall calving sensor will monitor changes in tail movements (contractions) and keep the farmer notified within the hour when the cow is about to calve. This notification will be sent direct to the farmers phone via text, email or push notifications. This can mean that a herdsperson or farmer can be on hand to assist with difficult calving events.
