Farmacy – a tool for the times

Jun 6, 2018 | Dairy, Dairy Animal Health & Welfare

Accurate and complete recording of animal health events on farm has become a crucial management tool. The digital diary makes accurate recording of your animal health events on your farm easy, and it meets all the data points required for the shed inspection. It is designed to use cow side, with most of the information you need pre-populated, and it is a quick and accurate solution designed to make life easier. It allows you to assess trends on your farm and can help with better decision making on farm during the reproduction season. You can set up individual logins for all your staff enabling you to monitor if treatments are being given correctly if you are away from the farm. Other great functions of include the ability to:

  • Calculate your monthly incidence rates of lameness and mastitis 
  • Monitor the incidence of metabolic disease over calving 
  • Look at your endometritis rates after metri-checking 

Farmacy has two management tables that sit on your digital diary home page, listing cows requiring treatments and cows still in withholding periods. It also has an export function that creates a customisable report of your treatments allowing you to select the date range, diseases, and treatments you are interested in. This has proven very useful recently in preparation for Milk Quality Consults, where filtering for mastitis has enabled farmers to quickly draw on their clinical mastitis information for discussion with their Vet.

“It is so good to be able to input the data cow side and it calculates the with-holding times for you so there is no confusion.”
– Bert (Gruythuysen)
