Moving animals around on the farm is one of the most time consuming activities. Crystal automates cow traffic by combining animal identification and operating multi directional sorting gates. Animals wearing either ISO tags or pedometer tags can be directed along a pre-programmed route to destinations such as holding pens or group areas.
CrystaWeigh is a precision walk over weigh system which will record the animal’s body weight without stopping her. The weight recordings will be registered in the Crystal herd management system and will be shown in graphs. Body weight can be monitored as a single parameter, but becomes more valuable when it is monitored in relation to other information such as milk yield, animal activity, stage of lactation, and daily feed allocation.
