smaXtec animal care GmbH

Understand the cow. From within

About the Project

How much time do cows spend chewing their cud? 

Healthy cows should spend 6.5 to 10.5 hours a day chewing their cud. If they don't, that can often be a sign of health problems. In addition to the amount of time cows spend chewing their cud each day, other vital parameters such as body temperature and physical activity are important for farmers. They help ensure healthy livestock and milk production at their dairy. 

Wouldn't it be great to automatically have access to this information 24/7 on your smartphone? We have a solution to this problem. Sensors in the cow's stomach let farmers monitor the well-being of their animals at any time, day or night. 

smaXtec demonstrates in a unique way how the combination of traditional agriculture and high-tech creative energy leads to the development of products that provide the best possible support to farmers for the important and complex responsibility of producing food and leads to solutions to some of the most relevant global challenges.
