Better Performing Cows
With mySilent Herdsman Health Alert, you have a 24/7 eating and rumination monitor to alert you to real-time pre-clinical symptoms of health problems in cattle.
What is Silent Herdsman?
Silent Herdsman is a heat detection & health-monitoring system for cows and heifers based on a revolutionary neck mounted tag (collar). Its alert system enables the farm to take swift and precise actions based on animal activity.

Silent Herdsman monitors a cow’s activity 24/7 via a wireless network and automatically detects changes in normal behavior, indicating patterns related to estrus, eating and rumination.
