Smartbow open days at South West Dairy Development Centre

03 March 2020

South West Dairy Development Centre will hold open days to demonstrate SmartBow, new wearable tech for cows.

The South West Dairy Development Centre is holding open days on 12 and 25 March from 11am-3pm to showcase SmartBow activity monitor from Zoetis

SmartBow is an intelligent ear tag which monitors the rumination, location and activity of each cow to deliver individualised health and heat alerts, leading to a more productive and profitable dairy herd. The South West Dairy Development Centre uses the tags to facilitate cow fertility and welfare and to assist in everyday management activities. 

To attend the open day in Beard Hill, Shepton Mallet, contact Gemma Young at Zoetis: [email protected] / 07500106266. Be sure to RSVP by 9 March and confirm the date you wish to attend, your name, number, email and any dietary requirements.
