Enable real-time, individual cow alerts during milking with Saber ID Herringbone – a cost-effective automatic identification system for herringbone and parallel milking parlours.
Full integration with Saber Herd allows you to configure alerts and manage rule based groups that are important to you, including:
- withholding cows
- slow milkers
- high SCC
An overhanging antenna allows us to retrofit Saber ID into the majority of herringbone and parallel milking parlours without significant or costly engineering work.
How it works
The EID reader identifies animals by their half-duplex (HDX) tags as they walk under the antenna and into the milking parlour.
Your compatible device is updated with the cow number and her position. Any alerts related to that animal are displayed to you.
Audio alerts notify you of animals with a high cell count, that are in withholding, or any other alerts that you set.
The antenna hangs approximately 1.6m from the ground and can be adjusted for height depending on your animal size.
How Saber ID benefits your farm
Saber ID is a free-flow system that doesn’t hinder milking time.
Connects with all other Saber Modules:
When combined with SCC and Milk sensors, Saber ID provides automatic and accurate recording of SCC and milk results to the identified animal and offers production and animal health reporting to support treatment, dry-off and culling decisions.
Full integration with Saber Herd means that each animal is identified automatically and full animal information is just one click away.
Real time event recording with Saber Herd allows you to optimise your herd recording, without the need to use a whiteboard or notebook.
Several reports are included to support day to day operations including:
- Bulk cell count
- Milking plan
- Milking summary
- Animal health
More detailed reporting features are available via Saber Herd (Cloud).
