Bovi-Analytics is an online platform developed by researchers at the Department of Reproduction, Obstetrics and Herd Health at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Ghent. This in collaboration with the DairyDataWarehouse.
It is designed to analyze large amounts of data available from dairy farms with programs such as SAS, R and PowerPivot. This allows veterinarians, herd managers and students to extract usefull information out of this big data sets, providing real-time information on herd status and management.
MilkBot® is a project to develop technology to quantify both magnitude and shape of lactation curves in a consistent and repeatable way. It is based on the simple observation that lactation curves vary, no doubt influenced by genetics, environment, and health, and tools for characterizing that variation are likely to be useful in understanding many problems in dairy herd management and dairy research.
