CowManager, the leading cow monitoring company based in the Netherlands, launches a new module, Find my Cow™. The module is the latest addition to CowManager’s smart cow monitoring system.

With Find my Cow, CowManager now provides dairy producers a complete monitoring system to maximize their profits (image 1). This new feature is fully integrated with CowManager’s other unique modules: Fertility, Health and Nutrition. This combination makes it easy to find cows in heat and intervene fast after receiving health alerts.

Find my Cow comes with a user-friendly, pocket-size cow locator, which enables producers to find cows inside the barn, and outside on pasture (image 2). Moreover, it does not require additional beacons or calibrations. Searching for cows in heat, sick cows, cull cows and cows in the wrong pen on dairies from 10 to 10,000 plus cows will now be an easy and time-saving task, allowing you to spend your valuable time elsewhere. CowManager’s multi-view functionality also allows producers to give the herdsman, employees, the veterinarian and technicians, access to selected real-time accurate herd data.

“We are extremely proud of this module,” said Gerard Griffioen, founder of CowManager. “This is proof of our expertise to keep innovating our revolutionary and user-friendly cow monitoring technology. We will continue to improve our platform to make farmer’s lives easier and achieve a successful and sustainable future in global dairy farming.

CowManager customer Dimitry Gruppen from Dittmannsdorfer Milch GmbH in Germany has tested Find my Cow during its pilot phase. He says: “My experience with Find my Cow is that it really saves me time I can now spend somewhere else at the farm. Find my Cow makes CowManager complete.”

Find my Cow will be available here for pre-order on October 1, 2018 with availability in early February, 2019 in the United States. CowManager is distributed by Select Sires Inc. in North America, Select Sires GenerVations in Canada and World Wide Sires in Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania.
