Cow collars, including ear tags and boluses and tags with similar functions, are recent technologies which provide cow health and reproductive monitoring to improve livestock health and welfare, lift reproductive performance and reduce labour and farm costs in dairy herds. Collars incorporating virtual fencing can result in greater protection of waterways and critical source areas for improved water quality and compliance, improved pasture management and utilisation, and reduced labour for shifting stock and setting up fences, thereby contributing to improved staff well-being, work-life balance and increased job appeal.
