Allflex partners with Nestlé farms to monitor dairy cows’ wellbeing

Allflex Livestock Intelligence,, has announced another major collaboration with Nestlé, the world’s largest food and beverage company. As part of Nestlé’s commitment on animal welfare, it is piloting Allflex’s SenseHub solution to monitor the overall wellbeing of cows, on dairy farms in several geographic regions. 

This collaboration aims to provide Nestlé with full visibility into the wellbeing of individual cows and the herd according to a set of key performance indicators (KPIs). The SenseHub solution will in turn deliver actionable information on the reproductive, health, nutritional and wellbeing status of individual cows and groups. The system has the potential to drive continuous improvement on animal welfare, more efficient farm management and more productive dairy farm operations.The SenseHub monitoring solution is already in operation on several Nestlé vendors’ farm

This project builds on Allflex’s long-standing relationship with Nestlé, founded in 2014 when Allflex, was chosen to lead the cow monitoring and welfare aspects of the Dairy Farming Institute (DFI) in China.

We are very pleased to expand our cooperation with Nestlé, a company that shares our belief in the importance of cow wellbeing as an element in responsible production of milk-based food products,” commented Dr. Stefan Weiskopf, CEO, Antelliq. “SenseHub enables multiple aspects of cow wellbeing to be measured, and we are excited to be sharing these abilities with Nestlé, to help consumers be better informed and confident in the food they feed their families.”
