  2. What is Precision Dairy? • Precision Dairy Management is a worldwide effort to maximize efficiency and production in dairy operations, allowing for greater profits. • Goal: Maximize farm production by individually managing each animal.

  3. Outline • Heat Detection • How does it work? • Benefits • Costs • Precision Feeding • How does it work? • Benefits • Costs • Robotic Milking • How does it work? • Benefits • Costs

  4. Heat Detection • How does it work?

  5. Heat Detection • Benefits: Saved Labor Workers are not required to do daily heat watches. Accurate Heat Detection The cow will be bred at the ideal time. Less down time (for cows) Open cows cost the farmer money.

  6. Heat Detection

  7. Heat Detection • Costs: Initial Price of program $7,500-$15,500 Decreased observation Computer skills required Shorter animal rest time

  8. Precision Feeding • How does it work? The animals transponder is read as it enters, a ration is formulated according to the animals needs and production level.

  9. Precision Feeding • Benefits: Automatic ration adjustments are made by the computer Increased animal efficiency Saved labor

  10. Precision Feeding • Costs: Prices range from $12,500-$24,000 (New) Decreased animal interaction Breakdowns are costly

  11. Robotic Milking • How does it work?

  12. Robotic Milking • Benefits: Animal Comfort Saved Labor Computer analysis of each animals production and ration adjustments accordingly. Increased efficiency

  13. Robotic Milking • Costs: Ranging from $25,000-$48,000 (New) Computer skills required Machine breakdowns can be costly and usually require a trained technician.
