CowAlert’s last 7-day list allows you to investigate your herd’s new lameness alerts and the new orange lameness alerts, allowing for early intervention. Within this new feature, you can manage your herd’s lameness alerts more efficiently by adding the cow onto a vet or foot trimmer list which can then be emailed or printed if required.
Once a cow is on the vet list and subsequently seen by the vet, they can be moved onto the treated list. CowAlert records this treatment process for future analysis. Similarly, the foot trimmer list can be accessed from the alert status page but allows for more detailed diagnostic feedback. The feedback from the foot trimmer can be inputted into CowAlert detailing the location of the lameness issue along with the diagnosis, date and any relevant notes, such as treatment provided.
