Allflex Livestock Intelligence and Nestlé have partnered to monitor the well-being of dairy cows that are producing milk for specific Nestlé products
This collaboration aims to provide Nestlé with full visibility into the wellbeing of individual cows and the herd according to a set of key performance indicators (KPIs).
As part of Nestlé’s commitment to animal welfare, it is piloting Allflex’s SenseHub solution to monitor the overall wellbeing of cows, on dairy farms in several geographic regions. The SenseHub monitoring solution is already in operation on several Nestlé vendors’ farm.
The SenseHub solution will deliver actionable information on the reproductive, health, nutritional and wellbeing status of individual cows and groups. The system has the potential to drive continuous improvement on animal welfare, more efficient farm management and more productive dairy farm operations.
Stefan Weiskopf, CEO, Antelliq, said, “We are very pleased to expand our cooperation with Nestlé, a company that shares our belief in the importance of cow well-being as an element in responsible production of milk-based food products. SenseHub enables multiple aspects of cow well-being to be measured, and we are excited to be sharing these abilities with Nestlé, to help consumers be better informed and confident in the food they feed their families.”
This project builds on Allflex’s long-standing relationship with Nestlé, founded in 2014 when Allflex, was chosen to lead the cow monitoring and welfare aspects of the Dairy Farming Institute (DFI) in China.
