dsp-Agrosoft and smaxTec jointly improve the user experience of dairy farmers through interface in HERDEplus
Graz, January 28, 2020 – Time is precious!
With the integration of smaXtec into the herd management program HERDEplus, dairy farmers can now access the data and messages of their smaXtec system directly in their herd management system. The simple integration of the existing smaXtec data into HERDEplus now gives the user an even better understanding of each individual animal in his herd. In addition, the user’s workload is significantly reduced by eliminating double data entry.
Animal health and fertility support
smaXtec offers a user-friendly early detection system to support herd management of dairy cows. The system provides valuable support for animal health and reproduction, as well as optional feeding. The revolutionary Bolus system provides the customer with valuable information about the animal’s health status based on the internal body temperature and movement activity. The strength of the unique “cow understanding system” lies in the earliest possible detectable of diseases, which allows the farmer to take the necessary measures before displaying clinical symptoms and thereby reduce time and effort. The aim of smaXtec is to help farmers in their daily work and to contribute to better animal health and welfare. The combination of the data of the herd management system and the individual, continuous cow monitoring contributes to the essential facilitation of work on the farm.
By individualizing the system, the farmer receives an alarm message as an e-mail and/or push message on his mobile phone whenever the values of each individual animal are deviated. The early alarm gives the farmer enough time to assess the individual animal and take preventive measures. With the help of technology, the farmer is able to react so much more quickly and reduce serious illnesses of his animals and medications by the earliest possible treatment. The earliest possible treatment reduces the suffering pressure of the animals and maintains a continuous productivity of the herd. An accurate infusion time window and the detection of the impending calving represent further areas of application for the use of the herd management system.
The aim of smaXtec is to facilitate the day-to-day work of dairy farms through useful insights and the early warning system for detecting irregularities. With the unique Bolus technology, the farmer is able to improve animal health and welfare, as well as animal performance and financial operating results through optimal herd management.
DSP has been developing and distributing…
agricultural software in the group with its subsidiaries dsp-Agrosoft GmbH and VIT-PC Software GmbH. Especially in the cattle sector, around 1 million cows are managed every day in more than 3,000 farms via the herd management software. In addition, numerous consultants and veterinarians use the diverse controlling software in inventory support and consulting.
Due to the collaboration of smaXtec and dsp-Agrosoft, data never needs to be entered twice again. In addition, animal-individual data is combined with data from the herd management system through comprehensive data synchronization, providing valuable support for dairy farmers’ decisions for the benefit of individual animal health and performance.
“The basis of any good cooperation is that both sides and all customers are satisfied with the result. So far, we can say that we are extremely satisfied with the result and that the cooperation with dsp-Agrosoft makes the experience even more enjoyable for the user of our system.”, Stefan Rosenkranz, CEO and co-founder of smaXtec.
