boumatic neck tag with eating monitoring


This Neck Tag measures the total time per day that an animal spends eating. When a cow has health issues such as mastitis, ketosis or acute udder infections she can decrease eating. Finding those deviations in her feeding behavior will be a signal of possible health issue to be investigated.

The RealTime system can be set up to send alerts when a cow has not eaten for a specific period of time; allowing the animal’s needs to be addressed quickly.
