Tip of the Month – January 2018



As a reflection for the new year, attention is again paid to the “2-Minute Check”.

The amount of data a milking robot delivers is crucial in order to find cows earlier with varying milk production, (udder)health status and behavior e.g. than in a traditional milking parlor.

This delivers, simultaneously with the possibility to intervene quicker, advantages for cows and farmer.

During a company visit, often the 2-Minute-Check document is left behind. It consists of 2x 3 important columns.

In the Status screen: 1) Who is too late;  2) Who’s given too little; 3) Who wasn’t milked properly or incomplete.

In the Cowmonitor: 1) Which cows have high or new increase condictivity; 2) Which cows have a high or new MDI notification;  3) Which cows have a different visit history behavior?

You can check these measurements and if you as dairyman know your cows you can tell which cows are correlated to previously statistics and more interesting: which are surprising you!.

Do this 2-Minute-Check before you make a round to the barn, clean boxes, etc.

Combining the data from the computer with your eyes and you have the GOLDEN FORMULA.

If you like to get the document with 2-Minute-Check, please send an email.

      Hallo Geert,

      Het snelst zie je dat in de statuslijst in de kolom “% van de verwachte melkgift”. Als je daar op sorteert zie je meteen welke koeien de laatste melkbeurt te weinig gegeven hebben.
