A large dairy farm supplying milk and curd to temples in India came to us with problems regarding their cattle and shed management. We deployed our Track+ Grow software to not only improve farm management but also used IoT tracking to assist in the monitoring and control of yield, animal history and vaccinations.

CLIENT BACKGROUND
A modern dairy farm supplying milk and curd to major temples in India. The firm had a strong emphasis on the health and quality of animal produce outside of its economic aspects. They also provided technical inputs to the general public.

BUSINESS CHALLENGES
The client faced challenges in the management of more than 2500 animals along with their puberty and animal history details. Their challenges also included planning and execution of different types of vaccinations, reproduction, calving, shed allocation, maintenance of inspection details for vaccination, treatment, heat observation, abortion and the monitoring and control of shed and animal-wise milk production.

SOLUTION
Tier 1 Digital’s implementation of Track+ Grow enabled the tracking of animal history, health records and feed consumption analysis. The software facilitated comprehensive cattle management through the generation of shed and animal-wise reports on reproduction, calving, maintenance of animal inspection reports and periodic activity registration of milk production, distribution and disposal.

KEY BENEFITS
The key benefits to the client were the generation of reports on yield, compliance and costing. The creation of a master database helped in planning vaccination and medicines with no duplications. IoT tracking enabled institution and temple-wise milk and curd distribution reports, increased user efficiency and individual attention to animals.

ABOUT TRACK+ GROW
Track+ Grow enables systematic documentation of growing information. Farm compliance standards are met to provide an opportunity for emerging farms to adopt good agricultural practices. Every element of information recorded on the system is geo-tagged to ensure complete traceability from seed to truck. Inspection agencies can make on-field observations using mobile devices and photographs to publish information about crop stages and diseases instantly. Agronomists and researchers can access this in­formation in real time to prevent disease outbreaks or forecast yields.
