Heat Detection

Vigreen CowControl automatically tracks signs of heat – such as increased activity, sniffing, chin resting and mounting behavior. The system shows a clear list of all cows in heat with their optimal insemination moment for effective insemination with the highest chance of conception. It also provides additional reproduction insights, helping you to find cows with irregular heats, non-cycling cows and non-pregnant cows.

Cow Locating

Finding cows needing to be checked, inseminated, treated or fetched was never as easy and time-saving as it is with Vigreen Cow Locating. It accurately shows and follows the real-time position of individual or multiple cows on your barn map with one click on your PC, tablet or smartphone. Vigreen Cow Locating is fully integrated with Heat Detection, Health Monitoring and Herd Performance Trends.

Health Monitoring

Vigreen Health Monitoring is an essential tool to keep your cows healthy, fertile and productive. The system compares all behavior with standards for optimum condition, the previous behavior of the cow and the behavior of the group she is in and detects changes or abnormalities. It provides the earliest and most reliable health alerts for cows that need urgent attention and shows a list of cows that need to be checked today, allowing you to treat health issues before they become problems. It also enables you to intensively monitor transition cows and post-treatment recovery.

Herd Performance Trends

Vigreen CowControl shows you how external factors and management decisions influence the herd’s performance. The system sends a group alert when it detects abnormalities among a percentage of the cows in a group, allowing you to respond to. At strategic level, group behavior reports and herd performance insights offer a valuable tool to measure the eating patterns, behavior average, consistency, cycling rate and performance. Also evaluates the impact of (changed) feeding strategies, housing conditions and milking procedures.
