This also announced the introduction of SenseHub, the new version of its SenseTime modular cow monitoring solution.

New Allflex Young Stock health monitoring application

The Allflex Young Stock application is a unique solution for monitoring young cattle. It enables farmers to detect the onset of health issues very early, preventing impact on the growth curve or future performance and reducing drug use and mortalities.

With the Young Stock application, and the recent addition of its reproduction monitoring application for heifers, Allflex has significantly expanded its holistic livestock monitoring approach to cover all the different animal populations on farms of any size.

The Young Stock application is available with the new SenseHub™ cow monitoring solution and the Heatime® Pro+ system.

Expanded coverage and flexibility with SenseHub

SenseHub is the new generation of Allflex’ market-proven SenseTime cow monitoring solution, which delivers actionable information on the reproductive, health, nutritional and wellbeing status of individual cows and groups. The new name reflects the current expansion to monitor more animals in different populations on the farm, and further planned evolution to connect with varied identification and management technologies, making SenseHub the heart of comprehensive animal wellbeing and performance data collection and analysis.

SenseHub offers comprehensive coverage of different farm populations, expanded support for any farm size, and enhanced flexibility to support multiple different application plan levels and tag types on the same farm. Additionally, SenseHub offers a choice of devices and payment options.

Current users of SenseTime can upgrade to SenseHub at any time, protecting their investment in existing tags and system components.

Advanced monitoring solutions with more flexibility

Allflex Livestock Intelligence also announced that all of its monitoring solutions now support both eSense Flex ear tags and cSense Flex neck tags, and multiple application levels on the same farm, to support the various populations on each farm.

“With the Young Stock application, Allflex now empowers farmers to monitor all cattle on their farm with dedicated applications and tags for each population,” said Dr Stefan Weiskopf, CEO of Antelliq, parent company of Allflex.

“This new application and increased flexibility of all our monitoring solutions, together with the advanced capabilities of the new SenseHub, are just the latest innovations in our continual drive to help farmers optimize the productivity and wellbeing of all their livestock, for more sustainable and profitable operations.”
