AfiWeigh is an AfiMilk module that automatically determines a cow’s body weight and stores it in the AfiMilk database.
The AfiWeigh system consists of one or multiple weighing platforms installed on the route cows follow when approaching or departing the milking platform. Each cow walking over the weighing platform is automatically identified and weighed.
The data downloaded into the cow’s individual database enables body weight based reports to be generated. These are an essential component in successful dairy farm management. This whole process is completed without interfering with herd traffic to and from the platform.
AfiWeigh is a decision support tool that significantly improves efficiency as well as increasing the entire production of the herd. Working in combination with other data parameters in the AfiMilk system, AfiWeigh data enables identifying cows that are late in regaining post partum weight, estimating dry matter intake and monitoring stress and health problems.
