Protrack® ID Herringbone

Enable real-time, individual cow alerts during milking with Protrack ID Herringbone - a cost-effective identification system for herringbone sheds.

View live animal production and SCC results on your smart device when Protrack Milk and Protrack SCC sensors are also installed.

Full integration with MINDA allows you to configure alerts and manage rule based groups that are important to you, including:

  • withholding cows
  • slow milkers
  • high SCC.

An overhanging antenna allows us to retrofit Protrack ID into the majority of herringbone milking sheds without significant or costly engineering work.

How it works

  1. The EID reader identifies animals by their half-duplex (HDX) tags as they walk under the antenna and into the milking shed.
  2. Your compatible device is updated with the cow number and her position. Any alerts related to that animal are displayed to you.
  3. Audio alerts notify you of animals with a high cell count, that are in withholding, or any other alerts that you set.
  4. The antenna hangs approximately 1.6m from the ground and can be adjusted for height depending on your animal size.

How Protrack ID benefits your farm

Protrack ID is a free-flow system that doesn’t hinder milking time.

Connects with all other Protrack Modules: 

  • Drafter
  • Heat (formerly EZ Heat)
  • Milk (formerly YieldSense®) 
  • SCC (formerly CellSense®).
When combined with SCC and Milk, Protrack ID provides automatic and accurate recording of SCC and milk results to the identified animal and offers production and animal health reporting to support treatment, dry-off and culling decisions.

Full integration with MINDA means that each animal is identified automatically and full animal information is just one click away.

Real time event recording with MINDA allows you to optimise your herd recording,  without the need to use a whiteboard or notebook. 

Reports

Several reports are included to support day to day operations including:

  • Bulk cell count
  • Milking plan
  • Milking summary
  • Animal health

 More detailed reporting features are available via MINDA.
