Smart DTECT is the difference between hand stripping every cow in the herd or having the job done for you – automatically.
SmartD-TECT is an early mastitis warning system that, during the first 60 seconds of milking, measures the conductivity of individual quarters comparing one against the other. You can tune the sensitivity of the system and set a benchmark threshold. Animals recording conductivity levels outside this threshold will be flagged as possible mastitis problems. SmartD-TECT is a stand-alone product that alerts an operator by way of an LED indicator located at each bail. When the system is installed onto a rotary platform and connected to Waikato SmartECR’s, it will in the event of an alert, communicate with the BailMate ram, keep the BailGate down and present the cow back to the operator for inspection.
