CowAlert is the leading fertility and health monitoring system for dairy herds. It uses a combination of highly accurate data analysis software and robust wireless sensors to provide the most reliable heat detection capabilities on the market.

CowAlert is the choice of dairy farms across the world to help farmers make the right fertility and health decisions at the right time. CowAlert’s pioneering technology is trusted by research institutions across the world, and has been at the heart of many of the leading studies into dairy cow behaviour over the last decade.

WHY USE COWALERT®

MARKET LEADING HEAT DETECTION

CowAlert provides highly accurate, market-leading heat detection. This has been tested and validated in independent trials.  Heat Alerts are available in the parlour, on your computer and on mobile devices. This ensures you and your team get reliable and timely heat alerts where and when you need them. Our customers report higher submission, conception and pregnancy rates and a reduction in calving interval, all leading to impressive savings.

UNIQUE DAILY LAMENESS ALERTS

Our daily lameness alerts are a world-first. CowAlert builds up a profile of the mobility of each cow and lets you know when a cow is lame or is in danger of going lame. A full history of the mobility of the whole herd allows you to easily track changes and issues. CowAlert keeps a close eye on your cows so you can intervene early, saving you time and money and contributing to high welfare. Watch the video here.

LYING TIME & HEALTH MONITORING

CowAlert simultaneously monitors key aspects of individual cow and overall herd health by observing factors including mobility, standing and lying times. Not just for the milking herd, find out if your cows are lying long enough. See the impact of management changes on individual groups.The system gives you the information you need to take action before certain health issues impact your business.

CowAlert’s robust wireless sensors are attached to the cow’s rear leg. The sensors collect data and monitor a range of factors including activity levels, standing and lying duration, step count and more.

Triggered download

In this mode, the system downloads the sensor data when the cow passes by a trigger, which is usually located by the milking parlour. The data is then uploaded to the CowAlert dashboard where it is analysed and actions are suggested.
