The impact of transition cow disease

Did you know that most of the transition cow diseases get unnoticed?  

Classic transition cow diseases such as retained placenta, metritis, ketosis or displaced abomasum happen in the first 4 to 6 weeks of lactation. If a cow gets sick during this stage it will affect the whole lactation cycle and a cow will not reach her full genetic potential. This of course can be very costly.  

Learn more about transition cow diseases written by one of our experts in this interesting read. 

Predicta GUARDIAN, for farmers who don’t wait till it’s too late!

Prevent disease before it happens. 

Managing dry cows and their transition period successfully is the foundation for lactation success. Transition cow diseases can be mitigated or prevented by optimizing dry cow management. Using your farm’s existing management software, Predicta GUARDIAN analyses the milk recording or milk meter data, along with reproduction data from a cow’s previous lactation, to determine whether a dry cow is at risk for transition disease(s).   

Using current herd data, Predicta GUARDIAN generates health alarms for individual animals during the dry period 6-8 weeks prior to the actual disease. This is impossible to detect with standard blood, milk or urine testing.

Learn about the key features and benefits of using Predicta GUARDIAN for your herd.

How do we do all of this?

We connect with your current herd management software (please check here for our data upload terms, your data is safe with us and we never share your information with third parties) and thanks to AI and our current cow data from many herds over the years we are able to transform these figures into useful pieces of information for dairy farmers and their vets. 

Using Predicta GUARDIAN stops you from second guessing and assuming and instead will give you a reliable data driven dry cow management solution. It saves you the worry and expense of whether you would need to treat all your dry cows and instead you only treat the cows that actually need it before the disease occurs.

How do you use Predicta GUARDIAN?

Customisable - Choose what will work best for your herd.  

You will receive an alarm on whatsapp or email during the dry stage if the cow is at risk of any of the 4 main transition cow diseases (ketosis, retained placenta, displaced abomasum, milk fever). This gives you enough time to manage cows at risk ensuring they are treated and they will reach their full genetic milking potential.  

You can customise alerts for your convenience for what best suits you. You can receive alerts when you decide, directly to your phone (WhatsApp/SMS) or email to prioritise  management of the at-risk cows.
