Vansun AfiWeign - Automatic Walk-Over Weighing System

Body condition indicates cows’ general physiological status. Without automated methods for evaluating body condition, dairymen cannot use this vital parameter in their decision-making. In the form of automated scales, the AfiWeigh system gauges cows’ body weight en route from the milking parlor. The system also evaluates eligibility for breeding, efficiency of feed intake and other post-partum problems reflected in body condition.

As a standalone system, AfiWeigh assesses the growth of calves and heifers in light of their expected body weight growth curve

Benefits

AfiWeigh can ensure sound management by:

  • identifying cows’ weight gain, which helps dairy managers define the time to start breeding; cows that enter a positive energy balance post-partum display increased body mass
  • measuring multipara weight gain/loss during lactation, which indicates feed intake efficiency, and may point out errors in transition feeding policy
  • detecting significant changes in body mass during the dry period, which indicate inadequate feeding during this period
  • calculating automated feed distribution for grazing cows according to body weight

Targeting Cows for Breeding
AfiSort is used for efficiently isolating cows for breeding.
This enables quick insemination of cows and avoids the need to stroll over large areas seeking out the cows for insemination.

Automated Cow Selection
AfiSort automatically traces the cows that need your attention every day. All you need to do is define the criteria for cows requiring attention and AfiSort does the rest. AfiSort controls the sort gates and separates the cows into their respective treatment areas according to your pre-defined instructions.

Computerized Herd-Control
Leaving the milking parlor, selected groups of cows can be diverted back to their pens. This capability is also used to automatically move cows between pens.

Vansun AfiSort AN Extra Hand on the Dairy Farm

AfiSort Automated Cow traffic control system is the most efficient solution for treating cows in a dairy farm.

Medium and large size dairy farmers treat a significant number of cows on any given day. Breeding, pregnancy, post calving checks, and veterinary treatment for sick cows is just a short-list of checks and examinations that farmers have to perform regularly.

Tracking, selecting and monitoring is an important and demanding task for the herdsman. It is time consuming, requiring data analysis, and can often result in animals being left unattended.

AfiSort is an essential tool in modern dairy farming.  It is a labor saving system that ensures that no cow  isleft unattended.
