Intuitive and easy to use. The app is very intuitive to use and navigate. The color coding and sounds help with increasing the speed of employees knowing what is to be done with the animal on the list. The intuitive design minimizes errors while increasing speed.
Customizable. Easily modify the colors, sounds, and buttons to your liking. Setting up the large buttons, so the most frequently used are the most prominent can further reduce the time for entry and the ease of use.
Breeding. Record a breeding in as little as 2 taps.
Treat, Vaccinate, Move. Most events record by scanning or 1-2 taps. This allows recording by an employee while they do their work, spending the least possible time on entry, and ensuring accurate cowside entry.
Real-time cowside records. Every employee can have real-time cow records, cowside. Eliminate errant entry and confusion writing down numbers.
EID wands. Every list is set up for the ability to use EID wands. Using modestly priced EIDs wands, dramatically decrease the time spent looking for animals.
Meaningful. Actionable Reports. Having the world’s most powerful software doesn’t mean anything unless the data coming out means something. Built-in reports are a great starting point to finding problems or opportunities and tracking progress toward their resolution. Graphically and easily find trends you didn't even know existed. Our graphical interface allows you to make complex reports on your own. And our data consultants work with you to create these reports if you have any trouble or want expert assistance.
Powerful. BoviSync has the world’s most powerful report engine for animal agriculture. Go back through all the years of your records or focus on recent trends. Add any genomic trait to reports. Our 'time machine' capability allows you to go back in time and see current animals, and their pen, DIM, DCC, and other status on that day. This allows you to run reports for evaluating production and health that no other software allows.
Custom. Built-in reports are a great starting point to build custom reports from. Once you have reports setup the way you want, save them to your personal menu or add then to your farm reports for everyone. Share reports with others or have your consultants share reports with you, so the whole team is on the same page and working toward the same goals.
Cross farm reporting. Consultants, mult-site dairies, and any dairy that is granted access to see another farm, can run reports across multiple farms in a single report and compare farms.
Import Parlor Records. We can import any of your parlor records at no cost. Easy to setup.
Reports. Get charts for individual animals or by pen, lactation, stage of lactation, group, or anything else you can dream up. Use the historic information to look at parlor performance by unit, shift, weekday/weekend. Track milk let-down and takeoffs.
Animal Movements. In addition to wrong pen reporting. If the animal is on the list to be moved to that pen, BoviSync will automatically record the move for you. One more way we save you time.
Improve Efficiency and Efficacy with BoviSync's focus on labor and employees.
Fast. BoviSync offers the fastest methods of data recording. Some of the different ways we differentiate ourselves on entry accuracy and speed are: One-touch entry on mobile devices, batch entry, support of importing custom files, ability to record events for multiple animals at one time, and fast single event entry. All of the lists don't need to be distributed, they just automatically show up on the device. And best of all, you can eliminate the paper lists going to the barn and returning for entry, and the illegible writing that goes with it. Move all your entry into the barn so records are done in real-time and save everyone time.
Improve workflows. BoviSync will work with you to help you setup the most efficient workflow if you choose, and we will teach you how to modify and adapt your program to your farm. This enables you to combine tasks today or at a later date with confidence to save labor. Many farms have specific workflow because they are unclear of how to change their current software and rather than going out with 2 or more lists at the same time and slowly trying to find animals, they go out multiple times for each task. BoviSync works with you to eliminate this ridiculous practice. We strive to get you operating as efficiently as possible.
Accountability. Check if any chores are outstanding for employees. All events have a record who completed and entered the event, to find non-compliance or employee based data entry problems. Find employees who need further training in areas like heat detection or detection of disease states.
Data Auditing. View the changelog to find who is making recording and making changes to your records. The undo feature allows you to undo errors.
All Your Records. A central part of BoviSync is that it puts all your records in one place. We can import parlor, DHI, activity/heat detection systems, weights, genomic, sire selection, or anything else on a computer. If we do not yet support a particular company or product you use, just ask and we’ll work to get it for you.
Easy. It only takes a couple minutes to register each computer on your farm. Then select the import type and the computer. It's that simple.
Versatile. We exchange as much information as possible. This enables you to do reporting you have never been able to before in your herd management software. A couple examples are; conception rate by hours between breeding and your activity system's recorded time of heat and a multitude of parlor performance metrics.
Increase the health of your herd though BoviSync's health system.
Improve Communication. Employees can add animals to the herdman's list of animals to check, by a couple taps on the mobile app while cowside. They can also record notes for the herdsman. These animals will show up on the herdsman's phone automatically. No more texting cow number and losing scraps of paper, which cause inefficiency and missed animals.
Protocols. Create your farm’s protocols for reproduction, vaccinations, treatments, calf feeding, management, and anything else you can think of. Set parameters for the rules on your farm for automatic enrollment or manual enrollment tied to specific health event to start the protocol. Monitor protocol compliance and test multiple protocols simultaneously with ease.
Treatment Tracking. All treatments are automatically recorded for who did it, when (to the second), and why. This allows ease of reporting by employee, health diagnosis, lactation group, basically anything, as well as total usage. Discover hidden costs on your farm.
Compliance. Create reports for all or certain drug use for past years that include date, animal ID, drug, health issue being treated, dose, route, method, and any notes recorded for the treatment. Track employee compliance..
Managing your farm is simplified using BoviSync.
Bulk Tank. Track the bulk tank milk and components. Get charts of production per animal over time and milk quality. Our math ninjas run statistical process control daily on your bulk tank and if there is a change you need to know about, you will get an email with the chart you need to look at.
Pen Scoring. Score pens for body condition, locomotion, comfort, hygiene, respiratory, and any of the other many scoring methods. Need more, just ask, we'll add it for you. Get the average and distribution of scores for the day and charts of changes over time.
Economic. Enter your milk check and SCC premium schedule and we’ll tell you how much each cow’s milk is worth (both $/cwt and $ for the day’s production), so you know the true cost when making treatment and dump decisions.
BoviSync makes breeding easier with our Breeding Management System.
Protocol Management. BoviSync's protocol management is very transparent, making it easy to create and see how the protocols are laid out. Creating records for all shot chores and tracking their completion and compliance allows the producer to improve his reproduction protocol management. The transparent logic in the protocol system allows you to confidently automate your breeding protocols in the computer, and allow for multiple protocols used for different groups of animals. BoviSync enables management for the group and by exception with ease.
Ease of entry and communication. Breeders can easily get lists of heats to breed and record breedings on the mobile app. Additionally, they can have customizable lists of preset one-touch buttons for: DNB by reason, record Aborts, add to vet check list, mark for DNB consideration, add to herdsman's health list, add to a lame trim list, etc. Make your breeder more easily and efficiently communicate what needs to be done on different animals without errors, lost notes, and missed communication.
Inventory and Semen Tanks. Have an unlimited number of semen tanks on a farm, and indicate where they are on the farm. Track the inventory in each tank (sire, # of units, cost, etc). Breedings automatically reduce the inventory for you. The breeder can see real-time the inventory before they leave for the day to ensure you have the desired sires available.
Assign Service Sires. Import the assignment of service sires as 1st, 2nd, 3rd. 4th, and 5th choices.
Pedigrees. Track the pedigree of multiple generations using BoviSync.
Embryo Transfer. BoviSync fully supports embryo flushing and transfer. You can also put animals on breed hold to hold them off repro stats and breeding lists when doing flushing. Do reporting for conception rate by stage of embryo implant, fresh vs frozen vs vitrified, and many more. The pedigree is automatically correct and records of the genomic and recipient dam are kept.
