Benefits
Train to gain up to 300 € per cow per year
Less inseminations per cow
Less veterinarian visits
Herd Navigator saves money from the very first day by pinpointing mastitis before it develops.
Herd Navigator diagnoses 50% more cases of clinical and subclinical ketosis than are normally detected. This enables immediate treatment, helping to prevent losses of up to 600 kg milk per cow, per lactation.


Reproduction

Save 3 euros per cow per day

Undetected reproductive disorders can stop cows from getting pregnant. Or cause abortions. And it costs you money: at least 3 euros per cow, per open day.

95% heat detection

Herd Navigator automatically measures the level of progesterone in milk: the “gold standard” for reproductive status. It detects heat with an accuracy of 95% and informs you when to perform insemination.

Pregnancy, abortion, cysts and prolonged anoestrus

In addition, Herd Navigator lists animals for final pregnancy confirmation, indicates early abortions and registers the risks of cysts and prolonged anoestrus.

Save 1-2 hours, 7 days a week

Herd Navigator can save you 1-2 hours every day. That’s how long many farmers spend checking for signs of heat. But with Herd Navigator, you can get the job done in just 10 minutes.

Reduce open days

Herd Navigator will help you to reduce days open, optimize calving intervals and improve insemination success while reducing the number of inseminations.


Milk production

Ketosis – get the feed-energy balance right

Clinical cases of ketosis can cost up to 320 euros a year. Although your herd may have only one or two cases a year, do you know how many subclinical cases your herd has? And do you know what this costs in lost production?

Subclinical ketosis usually undetected

Subclinical ketosis is caused by a negative energy balance shortly before and during the first weeks of lactation. Normally subclinical ketosis remains undetected. Yet it can create serious problems in many herds, with negative effects on milk yield and animal health. Research shows that it can cost as much as 90 euros per cow and year.

Herd Navigator monitors the right cows automatically

Herd Navigator will automatically monitor your herd – the right cows at the right time. The indicator used is BHB, beta hydroxybutyrate. This metabolite is involved in mobilizing energy from body adipose tissue when there is a negative energy balance.

Prevent losses of 600 kg per cow

But Herd Navigator will identify all cows at risk of ketosis, so you can quickly adjust feed and prevent milk losses – up to 600 kg per cow, per lactation.
