ANIMART, Inc. announces the recent addition of Feed-O-Meter™ to the Track a))) Cow™ electronic heat detection system.

Feed-O-Meter™ creates a 10-day behavior history measuring feeding behavior including visits to and total amount of time spent at the feed bunk. Deviation from the 10 day average can indicate health problems and animals that may need additional care. This system can also help identify mis-grouped animals on an operation. These reports are sent immediately to producers’ device of choice for analysis.

"ANIMART’s mission is to provide solutions for producers," said Dan Ellsworth, President of ANIMART. "Feed-O-Meter™ is aimed at keeping transition animals healthy, by catching sick animals early and reducing the use of antibiotics."

Feeding behavior monitoring is essential to providing a complete cow monitoring program for the producer. Indicating health concerns, detecting disease and predicting future rumination activity can help a producer lower costs on their dairy while keeping cows healthy.

Feed-O-Meter™ is included in ANIMART’s recently launched Calf to Calf™ program. The Calf to Calf™ program offers producers a 12 month 0% financing option which provides the complete Track a))) Cow™ electronic heat detection system along with two FREE blood pregnancy tests per animal.

Established in 1982 and headquartered in Beaver Dam, Wis., ANIMART, Inc. is a privately held provider of animal health and veterinary products as well as show equipment for dairy and livestock producers. ANIMART is committed to offering a full line of products and solutions to help dairy and livestock businesses succeed.
