A service that provides animal parentage information using DNA collected as a tissue sample. It allows knowing the pedigree of each lamb without the need for artificial insemination, single-sire mating groups and/or recording at lambing time.
The UHF RFID identification tag linked with a suitable antenna allows multiple and simultaneous readings of animals, at distances of several meters, unlike official tags (at low frequency). This device makes possible to read the identification numbers on lots of moving animals and adapts to individual proximity reading for the…

A tool with 6 3D cameras can take a photo of the shape of part of the animal or the whole animal. The prototype is currently in the research phase, and algorithms are being created to estimate the weight and NEC of ewes. Other systems exist in other sectors.
When a power failure is detected, the battery is low or the device itself is broken, the service automatically sends a sms alert on the breeder’s phone. The user receives a proof of life every day to assure him of the proper functioning of the device.
Monitoring mastitis and udder health management. It offers a rapid on-farm determination of somatic cell count. It allows you to detect mastitis at an early stage resulting in a cost effective control of mastitis and easier flock management.
Collecting individual feed intake animal data. Sheep are identified using their ear tags. If the animal is allowed access to a specific manger the gate goes down. The weight of the manger is measured before and after animal access and the weight difference is transferred to the central computer for…
Pregnancy scanning allows ewes to be scanned to diagnose pregnancy and expected litter size. This facilitates nutrition planning pre-lambing. Expected lambing date can also be predicted. A trained operator uses an ultrasound scanner and specially designed crate to quickly identify pregnancy and/or expected litter size. Ewes are marked to record…

After the cut, the grass is allowed to wilt for one day (or less) on the field and is then transferred to bunkers; these include a ventilation system from beneath which regulates the humidity of the air entering the bunker, and that leaving the bunker.
