EID and Sorting
Individual animal management is the underlying principle of Cow Sense products and services. Advances in science and technology provide enhanced tools to make individual animal management easier to adopt. Cow Sense products are focused on adapting these technologies at the farm and ranch, the "non-confined" area of beef production.
In the late 1970's and early 80's
automated identification technology revolutionized the way goods and
merchandise were identified, priced, inventoried and transported. The
beef industry, too, has automated and computerized while implementing
individual animal management systems. Farmers and ranchers recognize the
potential of reliable, cost-effective means of automating animal
identification and positively tracking performance and genetics. Source
and process verification, too, are now important elements of beef production.
Cow COMM's Auto Sort Function
Make better management decisions based upon objective measures - uniformly
applied while you work cattle. Cow COMMô uses data collected chute-side to sort cattle into
management groups as you work, using pre-defined criteria. You will set up sorting
criteria before processing cattle using stored or chute-side data. Cow COMM will then call the
animal's appropriate management group. The typical use of the custom
sort is in culling cows or bulls and selecting replacements. That's true value added!!
