SmartStock has designed a digestive track (rumen) bolus that specifically monitors the health and conditions of the nation’s dairy herds to improve productivity. The core body temperature, a unique animal I.D. and other data parameters of the animal are sent to the owner’s herd management database program on a continual basis.
The program has a special system in place to send alerts to promote awareness to any illness or adverse health events. SmartStock also has the potential use as a predictor of estrus and parturition to a reproduction operation.
