    MooMonitor+ wins Cream Award for Innovation!

    Technology is revolutionising our lives on a daily basis. Technology can also change the lives of cows. The ground-breaking Dairymaster MooMonitor+ is a prime example of this and has been awarded the top honour for Innovation at this year’s Cream Awards. This is the fourth award that the MooMonitor+ has won having previously triumphed at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, the National Ploughing Championships in Ireland and most recently in Hungary at the Alföldi Állattenyésztési Napok show.

    The MooMonitor+ is a wireless wearable sensor that allows farmers detect individual cow heats and health events with ease through advanced data analysis. It monitors cows on a daily basis and identifies specific types of behaviour such as feeding, rumination, resting time and different types of activity intensity. These features can aid in detecting heats, monitoring feeding and rumination patterns, monitoring cow welfare and managing the health status of your farm.

    The next revolution in the banking industry is contact-less credit card payments Dairymaster is already using this technology in their MooMonitor+ tag. You can swipe the tag with a compatible phone making it much easier to assign a cow. The added advantage to this is ease of use and less animal handling and stress for both the farmer and the cow.

    “Innovation is key at Dairymaster and winning this prestigious award for our health and fertility monitoring system is an enormous privilege. Everything we do is with a focus on how we can make dairy farming more profitable, enjoyable and sustainable and this award highlights that Dairymaster has a lot to offer progressive farmers” said Dr Edmond Harty, CEO, Dairymaster.

    The mobile app allows two way interaction with the system which removes the need to go back to the computer. When the system detects sick cows it will send an immediate notification direct to your phone.

    The system is designed for both indoors and outdoors and with up to 3,000 metres range in optimal conditions cows can be monitored anywhere around the farm. The system sends back information 4 to 8 times more often than many other devices on the market today – monitoring cows in real time. Shorter feedback intervals give more precise information about the onset of heat allowing you to inseminate cows at the right time.

    The better the heat detection, the more animals will be presented for artificial insemination (AI) and the quicker animals will be pregnant. The result of this are shorter calving intervals, which saves money in the areas of reduced culling rates, labour and the number of animals you need to re-inseminate.

    Accurate health and fertility monitoring has never been easier!
