Advantages of AMTS.Cattle.Pro
AMTS.Cattle.Pro is most powerful when paired with quality feed analysis. Carbohydrate digestion (starch and fiber) is a very important parameter. The CNCPS system uses laboratory digestibility at three time-points to estimate how fast the cow will degrade fiber. We recommend analyzing most forages on a monthly basis.
|Fiber (aNDFom)||Crude protein||Dry matter|
|7hr starch digestibility||ADICP|
|In vitro NDF digestibility|
The near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) allows for rapid and ecomic analysis for field use. There are several labs in the Europe, Germany, the UK and Russia that offer CNCPS-style analysis using NIR. Many of these labs have specific regional calibrations to improve accuracy.

Intergrierte Tierärztliche Bestandsbetreuung (ITB)
Veterinarians need accurate information on the current status and the development of animal health as well as individual and animal stock performance. For this purpose the information system Integrierte Tierärztliche Bestandsbetreuung (ITB) was developed in close connection to the herd management system HERDEplus. It is closely linked to the herd management systems of the famers and the central mainframe computers, the HIT and increasingly to practice administration.
Different modules meet different requirements. A fundamental separation is made between two primary fields of application:
- ITB Bestandsführung
- ITB Controlling
Advantages of Intergrierte Tierärztliche Bestandsbetreuung (ITB)
- a realization of the data collection through a data survey that is coordinated and complementary with the producer
- a combination of the animal health data with the performance data of the animals
- an intensive evaluation based on a common diagnostic and disposal code as well as uniform algorithms and indicators
ITB Bestandsführung (ITB-B)
The ITB Bestandsführung consists of a simple herd management system with integrated animal health monitoring that is specifically designed for the needs of the veterinarian.
This ensures a complete lifestock management in a complex data network with all available data sources. Through these, the current animal stocks are taken over into the ITB Bestandsführung and continuously updated without additional manual work.
Advantages of ITB Bestandsführung (ITB-B)
Data comparison to:
- Hi-Tier (HIT)
- dairy control association (LKV)
- laboratories (feedstuff, milk, blood, urine, …)
- central data center, health databank
- practice management system
- insemination and breeding organizations
- hoof care and
- herd management systems
- automatic animal stock matching with HIT
- insemination and control of the repeat breeder syndrome
- breeding hygiene (puerperal, pregnancy and sterility)
- embryo transfer and biotechnological procedures
- diagnosis, treatment, vaccination and reintroduction
- HIT – notification for health data
- TAM notification
- puerperal control, heat, pregnancy and sterility
- information about pregnant animals
- stock overview
- create weekly plans
- documentation of veterinary activities and services in the office administration
- transfer of data to ITB including AuA
- transfer of AuA from the ITB to the HERDE of the farmer
- recording the use of medication by the farmer
- transfer of the livestock book to the practice administration
- notification on databank
ITB Controlling (ITB-C)
Developed for analytical work in the context of veterinary care, ITB controlling mainly supports the veterinarian’s prophylactic work in reproductive and health analysis as well as feeding control.
Advantages of ITB Controlling (ITB-C)
- early detection of abnormalities, weak spots, feeding-, holding- and management mistakes
- determination of a company’s optima (voluntary waiting time, optimal insemination period)
- procedural and effectiveness control measures, biotechnological processes and treatment strategies
- combination of diagnostics and treatment with performance data
- the cause of the short economic life and life effectiveness
- Veterinary economics and lost income versus veterinary costs
ITB mobil iOS
For a closer and more effective cooperation between veterinarian and farmer, we have created the modules ITB mobile (for your own Iphone) and stable book mobile (for the farmer’s iPhone). In this context, the farmer receives a simple, clear and mobile herd management for all iOS devices after the data has been provided by the veterinarian. The veterinarian directly sends his farmer’s current animal stock from the ITB Bestandsführung to the farmer’s mobile device by email and receives additional information from the farmer that would otherwise not be available. The new data is ready for evaluation immediately after the import.
Visit the app store and download the free demo version on your iOS device.
Advantages of ITB mobil iOS
- stable numbers
- insemination and heat
- pregnancy and calving
- drying off
- All information can be called up quickly and clearly in the mobile device
- Decision support even without the farmer, because additional information available
ITB Futter provides the user with the ability to calculate, change and manage rations with little manual effort. The integrated ration evaluation sheds light on the coverage of the need for important indicators, such as intake of dry matter, energy or structurally effective roughage. The basis of the program is the guideline of the DLG. Another function is the control of the feed mixer wagon as well as the daily evaluation of the amount of feed added to the groups
Advantages of ITB FUTTER
- simple and user-friendly control
- usage of various feeding value tables (DLG, LKV Sachsen, Gruber feeding value table, LMS Schwerin, consulting tables)
- Assessment of the ration in terms of physiological efficacy and economy
- total- or part mixed ration
- three parts feeding with basic, compensatory and performance feed
- concentrated feed list
- digital reading of feed tests from the laboratory
- feed mixer wagon (for example Dinamica, MOBA, PTM, MerryWaage)
- Data exchange with the herd management program HERDE to the performance group classification
KLAUE is a software solution for veterinarians to increase the efficiency of detecting and evaluating hoof health. The recording takes place directly at the hoof stand under stable conditions with minimal effort. With a touch-screen pc, all entries can be made directly by finger pressure, even with gloves.

Findeisen Klauenpflege, which meanwhile are more than 20 years claw care in the whole of Germany. We also started small.
The start took place in 1993 as a one-man business. After three months, the first reinforcement was needed due to the great demand. Gradually, more and more customers came to it, so that currently 27 employees are active in claw care.
Due to our size, we can adapt well to local conditions to ensure fast and professional hoof care.
In cooperation with the Agricultural Educational Center in Echem, our hoof curlers are also brought up to date once or twice a year in theory and practice, even after they have completed their specialized Courses.
The KLAUE has been designed for touch operation. In addition to our software, we also offer the corresponding hardware.
So the KLAUE ePAD is intended for stationary use:
- Screen diagonal from 15 to 17 inches
- shock and impact resistant, as well as use of SSD and passive cooling
- Also available as IP65 device
- Flexible wall mount available
For mobile use, the Pokini brand devices are our favorite.
