24/7 information on your cows
Permanent insight into cow health
With good insight into the health of your cows, you prevent illness and loss of production. The Lely Qwes cow-recognition system measures the most crucial information on each cow every two hours. This provides you with a good insight into the activity of the cows and allows you to know when you need to intervene.
Every cow is different
The Qwes system is included as standard with the Lely Astronaut and other Lely equipment through the Lely T4C management system. Lely T4C converts the data into useable information for managing your cows’ health. This gives you a real-time overview of each cow in terms of milk yield, lactation status and history.
By accurately identifying the best insemination time, you increase the effectiveness of insemination. This also helps you to reduce calving intervals. The Qwes system is also available with heat detection. Lely T4C sends out a signal when the cow is in heat. This allows you to ensure that insemination happens at the right time.
Early warning of changes by monitoring rumination
Changes in rumination patterns are the first sign of potential problems. The Qwes system, which monitors rumination activity, alerts you to these. By linking these data to milk-yield information from the Lely Astronaut, the effect on cow performance and the dairy herd’s appetite is monitored overall.
