The period right before and after calving is an intensive period for both the cow and the calf. It needs to be closely monitored by the farmer. When no rumination activity is measured for too long in between 10 days before and 5 days after the reported calving, you will immediately receive a Distress alert from the Lely T4C InHerd system. This allows you to take action immediately.
