CowManager receives Dairy Herd Management Top 10 Innovation and People’s Choice Awards
PLAIN CITY, Ohio, September 30, 2015—CowManager has been recognized by Dairy Herd Management at World Dairy Expo as one of the Top 10 innovative products of the year and was voted the People’s Choice award winner. An industry panel of dairy producers, agribusiness professionals and university experts narrowed down the field of finalists to recognize the Top 10.
The simplicity of CowManager makes it fitting for dairy and beef herds of all sizes. It provides dairy producers with early and accurate alerts for insemination and identifies cows that may be sick and allows for early intervention. CowManager has become a viable solution for precision cow management in larger dairy operations with the ‘Find My Cow’ feature that allows system users to pinpoint the location of specific cows by using a proprietary smart phone application. The system allows dairy managers to utilize the data provided for precision cow management to maximize dairy performance while reducing labor costs.
Select Sires will be hosting an open meeting on Thursday, October 1 from 1-3 p.m. in Mendota III in the Exhibition Hall focusing on maximizing technology including the use of CowManager, genomics and inbreeding management.
On Saturday, October 3 at 12 p.m., Select Sires and Trailside Holsteins of Fountain, Minn. will host a virtual tour in Mendota I in the Exhibition Hall. The Johnson family of Trailside Holsteins milk 500 registered Holsteins and installed a CowManager system in January.
