Changes in eating behaviour indicate that there may be something wrong with the animal and that it should be checked more closely. Eating monitoring is particularly important in the period before and after calving, when an animal is more susceptible to disease because of changes in its environment, feed, energy balance and stress. The NeckTag proposed by InterPuls monitors the time each day the animal takes in roughage. The NeckTag Eating Monitoring function is the next step in automatic tracking of signals that highlight potential health problems in the individual animal. Thanks to the long range antenna, the Eating Monitoring fits to free-stall and grazing farms.
