Installing smaXtec on your
dairy farm is easy!

Step 01 / 05

Arrange a consultation

In a consultation meeting, you’ll learn about the smaXtec system and discuss how it can be implemented on your farm.

Step 02 / 05

Selection of devices

Our sales and customer support team will determine the right number of devices with you. This way, we ensure that sensor data is read out continuously and you always access the latest information about your herd.

Step 03 / 05

On-site installation

A member of the smaXtec team will support you with all necessary preparations – on-site or online. He or she will help install the read-out devices, support you with bolus activation and administration and set up your smaXtec account. Afterwards, you can already access your cow data.

Step 04 / 05

Introduction by customer support

After installation, our customer support team will call you a few times to introduce you to the different functions of the smaXtec system. You will adjust settings according to your needs and clarify all open questions.

Step 05 / 05

Always happy to support you

Of course, the customer support team will further accompany you when the first phase with smaXtec is over. Whenever you have questions, you can get in touch with us via email, phone or on the smaXtec website. Our team is looking forward to supporting you and will ensure that you make best possible use of your smaXtec system.

success stories

Hurtgenlea Holsteins
US, 160 COWS
Prior to using smaXtec, we did 90 % of our breeding with Ovsynch protocol and maybe 10 % were natural observed standing heat. With the smaXtec system in place, we are now breeding only 10 % on shot protocols.
Lauderdale Farm
US, 135 COWS
I highly suspect that our smaXtec system will soon pay for itself by cutting down on antibiotics use, mastitis treatments and insemination costs as we can breed with natural heats.
Paul Burnell
smaXtec has been brilliant for me, my cows, my family, my farm. The return on investment for me would have happened within the first 12 months.
Longshaw Farm
UK, 400 COWS
The smaXtec Boluses pick up all health problems within the cows, it’s very early detection. It often picks mastitis up long before there are any visible signs.
David Tait
UK, 110 COWS
We have had very good experience with smaXtec in terms of detecting diseases very early on – mastitis, lung infections but also swollen hocks or sore feet.
Joe Gardiner
Ireland, 300 COWS
Big thing with smaXtec is the detection of mastitis, usually we see temperature increases, so we are stripping the cows out in the parlour, identifying mastitis probably 2 to 3 days beforehand.
Rodney and Steph Goode
Australia, 380 COWS
I’d say we’ve increased our 60-day pregnancy rates by 25% since using smaXtec.
Paul Doble
I use smaXtec as an early warning system, to pick up issues early, take preventive measures and reduce use of antibiotics.
Quintrell Jerseys
UK, 300 COWS
During calving and AI time, the system is invaluable, especially the notifications on my phone. With smaXtec, it’s like having an extra person watching the cows. It has reduced stress – on us and the cows!

Advantages of the smaXtec bolus technology

To make sure that using smaXtec is as easy as possible for you, we offer integrations with many common herd managements programmes. Check here if an integration with your system is already available.
Definitely. Mastitis can be detected at an early stage based on an increased somatic cell count, but numerous other diseases such as pneumonia, retained placenta or influenza can only be detected early with continuous inner body temperature measurement. Additionally, smaXtec delivers further vital information such as calving detection and precise oestrus alerts, including a recommended insemination time.
Many customers use smaXtec on pasture. We developed a specific algorithm for oestrues detection on pasture, and all other functions (calving detection, health and feeding monitoring) work just as in the freestall-barn. Depending on how long your cows are on pasture, we offer different solutions. If cows are on pasture on a long-term, we offer solar-powered read-out devices. Get in touch with us and we will prepare a non-binding offer based on your specific needs.
Of course. The bolus technology has been developed carefully with veterinarians and technical experts. It complies to all necessary standards and has been tested and certified to be rumen fluid resistant by DLG (German Agricultural Association). There is no risk of interference with magnets or other digital systems in the barn.

The radiation of boluses is minimal. smaXtec boluses use a very low frequency, comparable to a garage door opener, and has no impact on animals or humans.
Yes, smaXtec is suitable for organic farms. Numerous dairy farms already use the bolus technology. Dr. Georg Eckert from ABCERT, a certification institute for organic operators, confirms that bolus technology can be used on organic farms in this interview.

Great health monitoring with earliest possible disease detection is particularly interesting for organic farms. The earlier diseases are detected, the easier it is to comply with the considerably stricter regulations concerning medication.
The bolus remains inside the cow for a lifetime. It remains in the same position in the reticulum due to its own weight, and is neither regurgitated nor digested.
You can see how the system works on a live farm at a reference farm close to you. Additionally, many research institutes use the system and are happy to show visitors. Get in touch with us so we can arrange a visit or connect you with a farmer nearby.
