Annie & Johnny Lowe
Sharemilker success with CowManager
As a sharemilker, your asset is the cows you own. With CowManager the system can go with you and your herd almost anywhere, it isn’t bound to a farm or a farm owner. Anni and Johnny Lowe at Lowe Residuals are investing in their dairy farming future by leveraging CowManager to increase profitability and reduce stress on their dairy farm.
Ear tags or collars? This herd has both!
David Fullerton at Waipiri Holsteins has been using monitoring systems since the ’80s. With a long history with cow collars and now 7 years with the CowManager ear tags, David is certain that collars are old technology and the CowManager ear tags are the way of the future.
Family & farming
Jason Laurence has had CowManager for over 15 months and now has a healthier herd with a less stressful mating season giving him, more time with family. “We wanted to find a less intrusive system and the tags to us seemed not as invasive on the cows as what a collar would be.”
A healthier herd
Dayna Cunningham decreased his somatic cell count by 36% through CowManagers ability to track the ear temperature of his herd. Ear temperature is an incredible important aspect to track and combined with activity and rumination, CowManager is often able to detect serious issues like mastitis before the cow becomes ill.
