DeLaval Herd Navigator™ – Everything you need to know about your cow

DeLaval Herd Navigator™ – Everything you need to know about your cow

November 5, 2019 1 By William Morgan


Lots of things have changed on this farm since the time of my grandparents.
The biggest difference is that I have more cows.
And then you have those small yet important differences that have been
forgotten through time.
Like this piece of wood my grandfather used to decide if the cow was sick.
Where I on the other hand use this. This blue baby gives me full control
over my cows.
I know exactly when a cow is in heat, how much feed she needs,
and how she’s feeling.
So, how does it work you ask.
The herd navigator collects daily milk during milking, analyzes it
and sends it to my computer.
So instead of using these which my grandmother used to decide
if a cow was in heat, I use this.
Here’s where the real magic happens.
You see the herd navigator doesn’t just analyze the milk.
It tells me what
to do and when to do it for each one of my girls
with this I know exactly which of my cows are in heat
and I know that she’s
showing early signs of mastitis long before I could never see it.
You see it all comes down to three things: control over my herd.
Less stress and a lot of money saved each year.
but I do have one thing in common with my grandparents.
I want my cows to live a good life and get the full attention they deserve.
