Silent Herdsman is a monitoring system for cows and heifers based on a revolutionary neck mounted tag (collar). Silent Herdsman is simple to install, operate and maintain and does not require anything beyond the basic knowledge of a PC system. Silent Herdsman continually monitors a cow’s activity and automatically detects changes in normal behaviour, indicating patterns related to parturition and oestrus.

Silent Herdsman identifies the cow’s cycle, eliminating the need for costly human observations or the use of labour intensive alternatives such as tail paint or patches. The result is a substantial increase in the successful identification of cows in these states. To prolong the collar’s battery life, Silent Herdsman flags an alert only when cows enter their critical states. Fertility, milk yield and operational efficiency are therefore maximised.
