Kieran Kerrigan of Alfco farming services said the partnership was a good fit that would bring together two complementary systems to increase farm efficiency.
“Censortec would be the market leaders in heat detection and health monitoring so when we went out to look for a partner, we saw Censortec as the people to go with” adds Kieran.
“They’re experts in the field of heat detection and we like to think we’re experts in the field of drafting gates. The farmer is getting the latest, most up to date way of carrying out their tasks.”
Censortec Nedap Cow Control tracks the heats of cows and provides health monitoring 24 hours a day through the Smarttag Neck Collar. It transfers all the data in real time, so you can easily access it on a phone, tablet or computer. This data is now being transferred to the Alfco drafting systems, which conveniently drafts any animals on heat attention.
Censortec Nedap Cow Control removes the need for tail painting, cow watching and other labour-intensive activities while increasing accuracy and making high submission rates a realistic target for dairy farmers. It aims to make the farm a safer place with regards the reduction in bulls and now the availability of auto drafting with the ALFCO Drafting System.
