Herd Navigator™

Key Benefits

Early detection of diseases

Herd Navigator™ automatically measures lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in the milk. The enzyme LDH is highly correlated to somatic cell counts early in new infections and is closely linked to the presence of mastitis. Levels of LDH rise rapidly when a new infection begins. Measuring LDH with Herd Navigator™ results in detecting an infection before it is visible to the human eye.

More successful reproduction

Herd Navigator™ automatically measures the level of progesterone in milk, informing you when the cows is in heat, when they are pregnant, if there is an early embryonic losses and which cows have abnormal ovarian structures such as cysts

Feeding and energy balance

Herd Navigator™ detects ketosis earlier than any other tool available. Early treatment of ketosis helps avoid unnecessary treatments (blind treatment of all fresh cows), decrease veterinary costs and losses in milk production.

Focus on the right cow, at the right time, with the right treatment.

Herd Navigator™ allows you to monitor your cows by exception through your computer reducing the need for physical monitoring three times a day. The time saved can be used for other management activities.

Herd Navigator™ is not just an advanced milk analysis tool; it also allows you to develop SOPs so that reports quickly show what action should be taken based on the notifications from the milk analysis.

You can give your veterinarian or feed advisor remote access to your dairy herd management data to provide advice quickly and efficiently, using real time data of your farm and herd. You and your advisors will receive training to ensure that you receive the full benefits from your Herd Navigator™ management solution.
