Animal health monitoring company adds software innovation
A Greeley, Colo. company, DVM Systems, has expanded its dairy cow health monitoring product line to include a breeding software module that will provide early automatic detection of ovulation. TempTrack RePRO software predicts ovulation 12 hours in advance to identify cows that are actually cycling. By continuously monitoring each individual cow’s temperature using a high tech bolus that is administered orally and stays in the cow’s reticulum for her lifetime, TempTrack can alert a producer to key health and breeding events. Selected as one of the 2013 World Ag Expo Top 10 New Products of the Year, TempTrack captures up to 24 temperatures per day for each cow, calculates individual animal baseline temperature and uses advanced algorithms to send dairymen three different types of alerts; 1) a potential illness alert for early disease detection, 2) an ovulation alert for breeding and 3) a parturition alert to signal a pending delivery in the next 6 to 12 hours. More than three years of research with five different universities in the United States and Canada has been incorporated into DVM Systems’ software.
DVM Systems is finalizing the breeding software module with release planned for the second quarter of 2013. The bolus is designed to last five to seven years and there are no collars or leg bracelets to move from cow to cow like many activity detection systems.
