“Together, CowTRAQ™ and TracHQ™ give farmers an all-in-one, 24/7 cow management system"

Dairy technology company Waikato Milking Systems has introduced an exciting new product to help farmers make better long-term decisions for care of their herd, and their dairy businesses.

The company recently launched its new CowTRAQ Collars and TracHQ software in partnership with dairy management technology company, Nedap. Waikato GM sales and operations ROW Jamie Mikkelson said CowTRAQ Collars offer complete heat and health monitoring for every cow in the herd.

“The collars can identify each cow and keep track of their signs of heat, position, eating, rumination, standing, lying, walking and inactive behaviour 24/7. It provides a precise and complete picture about the fertility, health, well-being and nutritional status of each cow and each herd.”

Benefits for reproduction, health and farm management

The collars offer farmers a chance to improve in several areas, depending on the focus or the season.
