A true insight into your cows’ health prevents diseases and loss of production. The Lely Qwes cow-recognition system measures the most vital data per cow every two hours. There are tags for various aspects, such as identification, checking whether the cow is in heat and rumination.
With good insight into the health of your cows, you prevent illness and loss of production. The Lely Qwes cow-recognition system measures the most crucial information on each cow every two hours. This provides you with a good insight into the activity of the cows and allows you to know when you need to intervene.
The Qwes system is included as standard with the Lely Astronaut and other Lely equipment through the Lely T4C management system. Lely T4C converts the data into useable information for managing your cows’ health. This gives you a real-time overview of each cow in terms of milk yield, lactation status and history.
More about Lely T4C
By accurately identifying the best insemination time, you increase the effectiveness of insemination. This also helps you to reduce calving intervals. The Qwes system is also available with heat detection. Lely T4C sends out a signal when the cow is in heat. This allows you to ensure that insemination happens at the right time.
Changes in rumination patterns are the first sign of potential problems. The Qwes system, which monitors rumination activity, alerts you to these. By linking these data to milk-yield information from the Lely Astronaut, the effect on cow performance and the dairy herd’s appetite is monitored overall.
The Qwes cow-recognition system has different tags, each of which has its own focus. Choose the tag that best fits in with your farm, wishes and goals.
Identification is essential for automated milking
The Qwes ISO ID is a tag specifically created for identification. This means, that each cow is being identified and recognized in the robot and all other Lely peripherals that require identification. This is the most basic type of tag which is in our portfolio.
To make sure the insemination timing is perfect!
With the new Qwes ISO LD neck you have ISO identification inside the robot but the heat activities are being read out by an antenna over a longer distance. Sniffing and chin resting - neck movements that indicate heat - are effortlessly detected by the ISO LD. Day and night. The data is available immediately (RealTime) via long-range data transfer. The antenna receives the signals of read out up to 75 meters in one direction.
Highest chance of successful insemination; even with difficult fertility cows!
The Qwes H-LD tag is a tag which, next to identification, measures the activity of individual cows over a longer distance in a 2 hour period of time. After the 2 hour block is complete it will send that block each quarter until a new 2 hour block is complete. The data is sent to the management program T4C without visiting the Lely Astronaut milking robot and then processed to notify you which cows are in heat. Based on this information T4C will inform you about the most optimal insemination moment.
The combination of rumination data and other sensors: the best basis for reproduction
Besides identification, this option provides information on rumination activity, overall activity and the health status of individual cows, as well as that of the dairy herd as a whole. The data are sent remotely by radio frequency. As a result you can monitor your dairy cows, heifers and dry cows 24 hours a day.
