At the Animal Health Department of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (Utrecht University) and CLICKEY solutions (Raamsdonk), an innovative cow sensor is being developed to better monitor the health of the cow. It is an internal sensor in the stomach of the cow through which information is continuously transmitted via the internet. The sensor provides actual measured values of variables that provide information about the health, welfare, position and reproductive status of the cow.
Providing the farmer / farmer 24 hours a day with up-to-date information about the status of his cows, whether they walk in or out. The farmer receives up-to-date information about the health, behavior and welfare of his livestock, so that the farmer can respond optimally and at an early stage to changes. This promotes the production, health and welfare of the cows. The information is always and everywhere available and accessible from any device connected to the internet, such as a PC, tablet or smartphone. If something goes wrong with a cow, the farmer receives an alert so that he can intervene immediately.
