HerdDogg's remote-sensing wearables and cloud-based platform enables scientists to efficiently gather real-time biometrics information for each of the 55 Holstein dairy cows in the program
HerdDogg has joined the WKU SmartHolstein Lab program to equip scientists with real-time animal biometric data that is critical to understanding dairy cow health and wellbeing. With HerdDogg's real-time animal biometrics sensors and cloud-based Animal Record Collection platform, our scientific team can efficiently gather incredibly accurate data that we hope will provide additional insights into each animal.

HerdDogg, the agtech innovator that creates more value for producers' livestock, has joined the WKU SmartHolstein Lab program to equip scientists with real-time animal biometric data that is critical to understanding dairy cow health and wellbeing. The WKU SmartHolstein Lab is a strategic, synergistic partnership between Holstein Association USA and Western Kentucky University Department of Agriculture and Food Science. Its mission is to lead Holstein and dairy advancements through research, development, and outreach in technologies, analytics, and genetics.

This week, HerdDogg tags were affixed to each of the 55 Holsteins at the SmartHolstein demonstration and development farm in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where scientists are studying novel phenotypic traits using the latest technologies such as wearable technologies, computer vision powered by artificial intelligence, and milk-based biomarkers. The SmartHolstein team is examining the practical use of data for on-farm decision making, with additional analytics…
