Frequently
Asked Questions

  • Does the system detect estrus in a tie-stall barn? As we detect estrus based on changes in the activity of cows we cannot guarantee a reliable estrus detection due to reduced activity levels in tie stall barns. All other functions (calving detection, early detection of diseases, monitoring of drinking behavior, heat stress detection and pH measurement) work without any problems in tie-stall barns.

     

     

  • How does the smaXtec activity measurement work? Any movement of the animal is continuously recorded via a normal 3D- accelerometer (like in cell phones). The recorded activity is summarized every 10 minutes in one data point and displayed in the smaXtec curve. Therefore, the smaXtec activity includes movements like walking, mountings during estrus or other activities. We do not distinguish between lying or standing, also single steps are not counted with our bolus (as pedometers do). The measurement is not negatively affected by the physiological rumen motility.

  • There is a sticker with a date on each bolus. What does it mean? This date is the expiration date – the bolus should be activated by this date. In this example, the should be activated at the latest by 15. April 2018.

  • What precisely are the benefits of pH-measurement compared to rumination measurement systems?
    In contrast to rumination measurement, pH-measurement provides direct information about the rumen status of you cow. It is the most direct and the only parameter for feed monitoring. Rumination activity is subject to a wider range of external influences; i.e. it is more variable and individual animal specific, providing less insight into the rumen status.

  • smaXtec Premium Are there differences between the rumen pH-value and the pH-value in the reticulum?
    The pH-values of rumen and reticulum are very closely connected. As the value is always measured at the same place in the reticulum, any changes of deviations of the pH-value can be traced back to management and ration.

  • smaXtec Basic Can I reuse the smaXtec Basic Bolus during its measurement cycle in another animal?
    We do not recommend reusing smaXtec Basic Bolus in other animal for reasons of biosecurity. Furthermore, changes of medium (rumen/air/rumen) can have a negative impact on measurement accuracy.
