Wouldn’t it be nice if you could access all data from all of your automatic feeders and all calves on your PC at any time? And if your employees can also see the alarm lists and work through task lists on their own smartphones or tablet PCs, then the tasks and workflows in the calf stable are clearly defined. All of this is possible with CalfGuide, the information system for your H&L automatic feeders.
The CalfGuide collects the data from all of your automatic feeders and makes it accessible via a separate WLAN network in the calf stall.
Alternatively, you can also access and use the data in your farm network on all linked devices.
The CalfGuide displays a complete overview of all automatic feeders and calves on your farm.
Starting from clearly organised, user-friendly lists, you can navigate directly into the feeding and growth curves of individual calves. The system makes it easy to obtain a general overview or to precisely analyse individual animals.
The CalfGuide calculates an alarm index based on a variety of data, such as drink consumption, drinking speed, visit frequency, body weight development, etc. This allows you and your employees to immediately see which calves you have to attend to first. In addition, you can record issues or problems, such as illnesses, in an "event diary", and thus create clear and verifiable documentation of them.
We can’t know today what questions about your calf feeding you may have in the future, but it is very likely that the CalfGuide will still be able to answer them. With the flexible list generator, you can create your own customised lists precisely tailored to your questions. For example, you can create simple, basic lists for routine checks, but also very specifically filtered lists for special checks and monitoring.
The CalfGuide does not forget anything. All of the data on your calves, e.g. drinking quantities, body weight development, treatments, etc. are permanently stored in an archive after the calves have been weaned. The CalfGuide thus provides the option to see how you fed your best cows when they were calves – even years later. This enables you to optimise your feed programme over the long term.
Every employee knows what he or she has to do, and when. And you always have an overview of all of the work tasks as well as the development of your calves. Urgent tasks are displayed immediately.
The data from your automatic feeders are centrally collected and managed on a server. The CalfGuide system then makes the data accessible via a WLAN in the calf stable, and with tablets, for example, you can use all of the functions at any time. Of course, you can also integrate the CalfGuide into your farm network and thus utilise all of the CalfGuide functions from your workstations in the network.
The CalfGuide organizes and schedules your tasks and reminds you about what has to be done. Relocate calves after xxx days? Separate the male calves after xxx days? You only need to define each of the recurring tasks one time, and then the CalfGuide reminds you and your employees daily about what has to be done.
The CalfGuide displays all technical error messages reported by your automatic feeder, even those that the feeder has already resolved itself.
The independent CalfGuide system works with any operating system and device, and it runs on your desktop computer as well as on tablets – thus ensuring that you have an optimal overview in the calf stable at all times. All of the data are just a few clicks or taps away...
