The HERDEpluspairing enables the retrieval and sending of the cow-specific data, group membership, the transfer of brunch alarms as well as the day-to-day chewing times. This allows you to manage each cow to reach its full potential.

HERDEplus is a new development based on the well-known herd management software. The know-how of more than 40 years is continued. HERDEplus offers better capabilities than its predecessor and can be connected to various technical interfaces, such as Zoetis’ advanced milk cow monitoring system, SMARTBOW.
