The use of activity monitor systems is becoming increasingly common on dairy farms. While the systems were first developed as a tool to manage breeding, they are increasingly being used as a health monitoring tool. This benchmark group is designed to provide dairy farmers with an opportunity to discuss best management practices around the use of this technology. While there are differences between systems in how they collect and present information to the farmers, there are management practices and lessons that can be shared across these products.

This meeting will focus on the use of activity systems as a health monitoring tool.

This is a free event, lunch will be provided. Support provided by the Center for Dairy Excellence.

This will be an on-going program, additional dates and locations for future meetings of this benchmark group will be identified during this meeting.

Who is this for?

This discussion group is intended for dairy farmers currently using activity monitor systems.

What will you learn?

Farmers will have an opportunity to talk about the benefits and challenges they have had with adopting this technology and discuss best management practices that have led to the successful implementation of the technology.
