When using Ida, the intelligent dairy assistant, the recovery time of cows can be reduced by more than half. This was shown in a scientific field study. Ida, developed by agtech company Connecterra, uses Artificial Intelligence to spot early signs of disease.

The field trial was done within the context of the Horizon2020 Internet for Food and Farm project and supported by Wageningen University and Research Centre in the Netherlands.

“It is the first time that such a field trial has been done to test the use of sensor technology in relation to treatment days. The latest results over 2019 are impressive and confirm what we have seen in the first year (2018) of the trial”, explains Niels Rutten, researcher at Connecterra and coordinator of the trial.
