Brought To You By

With SMARTBOW from Zoetis, the world’s leading animal health company, you and your veterinarian have access to real-time, 24/7, individual cow insights. The intelligent SMARTBOW ear tag monitors the rumination and activity of each cow to deliver health and heat alerts to prevent, detect and treat animal health issues in your dairy — ultimately leading to better outcomes.

Industry-Leading Rumination Monitoring

A cow’s ear shows a very distinctive and recurring movement pattern while ruminating. By detecting these characteristic movements, SMARTBOW can analyze the rumination activity and precisely deliver insights regarding a cow’s health status. SMARTBOW technology provides the most accurate rumination monitoring in the industry, 97% to 99% accuracy,2,3 and delivers two types of rumination alerts — an urgent decline in rumination and a long-term decline in rumination.

Features

  • Identify health issues and diseases earlier
  • Enhance intervention success
  • Optimize herd management and animal well-being
  • Reduce illness-related losses and culling costs

Unparalleled Heat Detection

SMARTBOW allows precise detection of heat through changes in behavior and animal activity. The system trains itself over time, based on each individual cow’s behaviour patterns. For that reason, heats can be detected with a reliability of 97%, which generates alarms on smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.1

Features

  • Effectively identify a cow in heat
  • Increase your insemination successes
  • Reduce the amount of labor needed for successful reproduction
  • Reduce your reproduction costs

Truly Real-Time Localization

SMARTBOW collects each cow’s location 24 hours a day, seven days a week and sends information to your server. This allows individual animal position and movement to be continuously tracked.

Features

  • Find animals quickly and easily
  • Locate animals in real time
  • Track individual cow movements
  • Quickly locate cows that need attention with accurate localization
