Cow Monitoring and Herd Management

Dairy farming is becoming an increasingly complex and sophisticated business. The need to have accurate, up-to-date information on which to base herd management and business decisions is essential.

Cow monitoring is also essential to understand reproduction performance and cow health.

Growing consumer interest, animal welfare, traceability and food quality, are all areas that demand accurate record keeping in relation to farm activities, and it is impossible to satisfy all these demands from manual records alone.

Fullwood Packo’s bespoke herd management software, Crystal, makes it possible to automate milking, feeding, weighing, separation and identification of health issues.
