  • Early detection of mastitis through systematic temperature monitoring

    Today we’d like to discuss about mastitis, one of the most common diseases in cows which requires faster response.You can recognize the following symptoms when your cows are hurt, or they are very sick.- Shortness of breath- Reduction in mobility, due to feeling unwell- Signs of discomfort in walking- Lack of appetiteWhat is common among these symptoms?When cows display definitive symptoms, it is a sure sign that they are suffering from some type of illness.This means you can diagnose a disease and take appropriate actions on time.Every symptom of the diseases is unique for each cow, but mastitis case is different from other symptoms.Mastitis is a disease in which bacteria or fungi invade the cow's breast and cause inflammation.Cows can get infected by mastitis very easily and the recurrence rate is high even after the treatments.Also, it is highly contagious between cows hence it is very important to detect and diagnose the disease as early as possible.As noted earlier, it’s important to detect the disease as early as possible,but sometimes cows display no obvious clinical symptoms of the illness and no visible cues for farmers to identify.The most frequently seen symptom of the disease is small clots in the milk.However, in this case, you can only diagnose the disease after milking, meaning it has a high risk of missing the appropriate treatment time.The other symptom of the mastitis can be an increase in the body temperature due to the inflammation.It is virtually impossible to measure and manage the body temperature of all cattle every hour of every day and quickly detect changes in body temperature.But with LiveCare, continuous temperature monitoring is possible!LiveCare capsule, administered in the rumen can provide temperature monitoring on the hourly basis and you can see it through below graphs.LiveCare continues the temperature measurement, and automatically sends an alarm when it detects temperature anomaly.LiveCare enables early detection and treatment of mastitis for the affected cows;in other words, early management of this disease allow farmers to minimize loss of milking and even more importantly, needless suffering of the cow.A real case how LiveCare service helped the farmerHere’s a case from a farm in Gangwon-do where the farmer was able to identify the cow with mastitis though LiveCare capsule.This cow has had mastitis in the past. The farmer checked the temperature increase and did a separate milking just in case.Farmer found that milk composition was not satisfactory.Hence, he decided to quarantine the affected cow to prevent the spread of the disease and then treated the cow with antibiotics.This is a body temperature graph which shows significantly higher than usual when cow has a case of mastitis.Many of our farmers mentioned that it is not easy to confirm the diseases without prominent signs of symptoms even though they have enough knowledge and experience.In this case, LiveCare service has consistently assisted the farmers to enhance their decision making process. LiveCare continues to play an important role to the farmers by providing real time health monitoring and accurate alarms. Fresh milk comes from healthy cows! LiveCare is for our animal’s welfare to prevent the variety of diseases including mastitis!

  • LiveCare can help you manage frequent respiratory diseases

    Cold weather can be hard on people, so does for livestock animals like cattle. It is important to keep your livestock healthy outdoors in cold weather.Respiratory diseases occur remarkably high in the change of season and especially in the cold weather.Causes of respiratory diseases include insufficient intake of colostrum in calves, long-distance transportation, overcrowded barns and stress such as cold due to poor ventilation and temperature management.These will cause damage to the mucous membrane of the respiratory system of cattle. Eventually, it causes infectious disease, and the immune system is weakened.It’s not easy to detect the clinical signs in early stage of the respiratory disease.You can suspect the disease if you find your cows with the following symptoms – depression and loss of appetite, coughing and rapid shallow breathing.Moreover the body temperature can go up to 40~42°C.If the disease is treated early, it can be recovered within 24 to 48 hours, but cows can die within 2 to 4 days even after the careful treatment.That's why early detection of disease is important for your cows.Today, we would like to introduce a case how early symptoms of respiratory diseases were detected with the biometric data collected from LiveCare capsules which reduced the economic losses.[October 24 – October 27, 2020]#1**2 cow (56-month-old Holstein) at H farm in Yecheon-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-doThe body temperature of the cow increased by 1.5°C sharply from October 24. Then, AI alarm for temperature elevation was automatically sent to LiveCare App on October 26 at 00:27 am.[October 31 – November 2, 2020]The temperature continued to elevate for 4 days, and after 4 days, a sudden drop in the temperature was detected.The rumen activity (internal regurgitation activity) decreased during these 4 days of low temperature.This dramatic temperature change and slow rumen activity were suspected, and LiveCare customer service team contacted the farmer to check the cow’s condition.When the farmer went to the barn to check, cow didn’t eat the feed enough and cow showed a symptom of diarrhea.[November 4, 2020]The farmer reviewed the alarms for continuous temperature elevation and fall and spoke with LiveCare support team.Farmer contacted the vet and cow was diagnosed with a respiratory disease.[November 5, 2020]For #1**2 cow, anti-inflammatories and antibiotics were prescribed to treat the disease.Even the drug treatment continued for several days, the farmer was able to check the cow’s condition by LiveCare’s real-time monitoring system.LiveCare service helped the farmer to detect the subtle symptoms before it all got worse, especially during the cold winter months!

  • Management of pregnant cow’s health through LiveCare!

    Did you know that LiveCare does more than just detect and manage estrus?LiveCare is a livestock healthcare service which can detect and alert you on abnormal health conditions of your livestock and detect its symptoms.Let’s examine a case on how LiveCare can provide you with effective cattle health management.We are on a farm in Gongju, located in the eastern part of Chungcheongnam-do Province. It was around 4 a.m. before the farmer even started the day.LiveCare service detected that the body temperature of a cow was unusually high, and an alarm was sent to the service app.After having received the alarm, the farmer checked the cow that it was showing a symptom of cold as the weather suddenly got very cold.The farmer could have called the veterinarian right away and prescribed antibiotics, but the farmer decided to monitor the cow without immediate medication treatment.The reason was because this was a pregnant cow!So what could the farmer do next since he decided not to give the cow the antibiotics right away?It was important to monitor the cow more closely to ensure that the symptoms did not get worse and that they were drinking enough water.LiveCare demonstrated its true value during this time.Even when the farmer could not personally monitor the cow (as he had other tasks to complete),he could simply check the LiveCare App to keep an eye on the cow’s temperature and activity level.LiveCare system noticed that the cow’s temperature did not normalize even after 24 hours from the initial temperature elevation alarm was sent,so an additional alarm was sent to the LiveCare App.The farmer continued to monitor the cow through LiveCare and after having received multiple alarms and examining the temperature graph for 48 hours, the farmer decided to contact a veterinarian.The cow was prescribed antipyretics and the temperature decreased and soon normalized.You can see in the temperature graph below that the average temperature for the past 48 hours was much higher than usual before the cow was treated with anti-fever medication where the temperature returned to normal.Do you see that the cow has now fully recovered? Through LiveCare, the farmer was able to identify and recognize a sick cow and provided appropriate treatment in a timely manner. By using both the alerts and the temperature graph, you can use LiveCare more effectively to manage your cattle’s health.

  • "Subclinical Ketosis, discovered by LiveCare"

    Did you know that the most common disease caused by energy imbalance in dairy cows is Ketosis?Ketosis is a very familiar term in dairy industry because it is one of the most common diseases such as Mastitis which has about 15% infectious rate.In addition, the economic damage caused by ketosis leads not only to related treatment costs,but also to reduced milk quantity and quality and reproduction problems in the longer term. Therefore, "prevention and early detection of ketosis in cows during the transition" is very important.It may be difficult to determine subclinical ketosis without routine testing such as measuring ketone body concentrations every day.However, if you can identify one of the symptoms of ketosis like loss of appetite (decreased lumbar activity) in early stage, ketosis can be treated in its early stages.Let us introduce you to a live case study on how Ketosis was identified with LiveCare capsule.Pre symptom of loss of appetite was detected 5 days before it led to elevated temperature.We’d like to show how the high temperature alerts were sent to the farmer.[June 9 – June 15, 2021]#3**6, 35-month-old Holstein from Al Ain farm, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.The rumen activity (internal regurgitation activity) started to decrease more than usual.This is a dairy cow that completed the calf delivery on June 10. As it is at early stage of lactation,the farmer needed to pay more attention to the feeding of the cow.[June 16, 2021, 2:00 am]The body temperature of the #3**6 cow rises sharply by more than 1.5°C than usual.It is 2:00 am when everyone was asleep.Body temperature rise alarm was automatically sent through uLike Korea's AI (Artificial Intelligence) system.At 3:00 am, the farmer observed #3**6 cow during the milking time following the LiveCare alarm and gave a special treatment for postpartum stress care.[June 18, 2021, 10:00 am]After milking in the morning, the usual body temperature of the #3**6 cow rose more than 1.5°C in two days.Following repeated body temperature rise alarms, the farmer asked the veterinarian for a thorough diagnosis and the cow was tested positive for ketosis.Thanks to LiveCare capsule function of measuring the amount of activity in the rumen, it was possible to diagnose loss of appetite (lower lumbar region activity) early.Also, we were able to detect ketosis early due to a rapid increase in body temperature which was significantly different from the other days.[June 23, 2021]After testing positive for ketosis, cow was immediately transferred to the special stable, isolated from others for treatments.During intensive care, cow’s health condition was checked in real-time by LiveCare capsule.Ketosis was cured within a week after it was first discovered.In this case of ketosis, the treatment period was shortened as it was detected early enough by LiveCare.In addition, farmer was able to prevent the secondary infection which also led to minimum economic damages. LiveCare is on as we speak to monitor the health of all cows around the world!

  • "Change of Ruminoreticular Temperature and Body Activity before and after Parturition in Hanwoo (Bos taurus coreanae) Cows"

    AbstractHow do body temperature and activity change before and after parturition in pregnant cows? Changes in body temperature such as ruminal, rectal, and vaginal temperature during the parturition have been reported, but there are no results of the simultaneous observation of body temperature and activity. The aim of this study was to simultaneously confirm changes in the ruminoreticular temperature and body activity before and after parturition using the ruminoreticular bio-capsule sensor every 1 h. The 55 pregnant cows were used for the experiment, the ruminoreticular bio-capsule sensor was inserted and stabilized, and the ruminoreticular temperature and body activity were measured. The ruminoreticular temperature was lower by 0.5◦from −24 h to −3 h in parturition compared to 48 h before parturition and then recovered again after parturition. Body activity increased temporarily at the time of parturition and 12 h after parturition. Therefore, the ruminoreticular temperature and body activity before and after parturition was simultaneously confirmed in pregnant cows.Keywordsparturition, bio-capsule sensor, ruminoreticular temperature, body activity, HanwooSensors 2021, 21(23), 7892Published: 26 November 2021

  • "Differences in ruminal temperature between pregnant and non-pregnant Korean cattle"

    AbstractIn recent years, various methods of measuring body temperature have been developed using wireless biosensors to facilitate an early detection of pregnancy and parturition in cows. However, there are no studies on real-time monitoring of cattle body temperature throughout pregnancy. Therefore, we investigated the daily mean ruminal temperature in pregnant cows throughout pregnancy using a ruminal bio-capsule sensor and then evaluated the temperature variation between pregnant and non-pregnant cows. In pregnant cows, the mean and standard deviation of ruminal temperature was 38.86 ± 0.17℃. Ruminal temperature in pregnant cows slowly decreased until 180 to 190 days after artificial insemination and after that, the temperature increased dramatically until just before parturition. Furthermore, the means ruminal temperature was significantly different between pregnant and nonpregnant cows. The mean and standard deviation of ruminal temperature were as follows: 38.68 ± 0.01℃ from days 80 to 100, 38.78 ± 0.02℃ from days 145 to 165, 38.99 ± 0.45℃ from days 200 to 220, 39.14 ± 0.38℃ from days 250 to 270 before parturition. Therefore, our results could provide useful data for early detection of pregnancy and parturition in Korean cows.KeywordsKorean cattle, pregnant cow, ruminal bio-capsule sensor, ruminal temperatureJournal of Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology 2021;  36(1):40-50

  • "Non-gestation detection case of gestation sensed cattle"

    | Non-gestation detection case of gestation sensed cattle (Case of estrus detection)Normally it’s available to sense whether gestated or not over 2-3 months after insemination. Estrus alarm is not sent to cattle which were surly gestated through the judgement even if similar signal has been sensed If gestation judgement is registered in LiveCare application.However, we will introduce the case that sensed non-gestated showing similar pattern with estrus term on gestation sensed cattle. Today we are going to introduce the cattle in C farm, Cheong-yang.The cattle which were inseminated by sensed estrus in December and registered to gestate in February.The cattle which are registered to estimate calving date in September started to sense a suspicious of estrus with a similar pattern of estrus term again from middle of march. Alarm of exterior activity increasing has sent as the estrus term.Even though estrus alarm was not sent because sense is already registered but manager who had been monitored inquired to famer directly.And the result of re-sense was non-gestation was confirmed.Farmer gave us feedback those cattle was re-inseminated on optimized insemination time when we recommended.Even though the cattle was gestated sense, it occurred as non-gestation state due to the miss sense or miscarriage. Thanks to LiveCare sensed the estrus, we confirmed rapidly that would be longer the non-pregnant condition. LiveCare is trustable care service for 7/24!

  • "Calving prediction case of natural mating cattle"

    | Even though we don’t know the exact insemination date, we can predict the calving date!The cattle in S farm, Hae-nam city. It was impossible to know the exact insemination date due to the nature mating during the pasturing. Also estimated calving date was impossible to estimate even don’t know insemination date and It was available to rough guess that would be calved in September based on pasturing.In the end of September, The suspicious signs of calving has been sensed through the AI algorithm analyzed by LiveCare.Cattle which is imminent to calving shows the signal of low temperature than usual.As you see the graph, it appears the temperature in 26th when alarm sent shows lower temperature than before.In the next day, we got a reply from farmer that calving was been succeed without incident. "I would be almost lost If I didn’t use LiveCare service!"Thanks to smart LiveCare which sense the calving exactly in any case, It doesn’t matter even we faced to the situation of calving in the middle of night.

  • "The case of utilization of LiveCare “No drinking” alarm"

    | What is no drinking alarm? LiveCare senses the drinking pattern through the analysis of temperature change in rumen.So, if there is no drinking pattern for 30 hours, send a “No drinking” alarm.This is a temperature change for 1 week.Can you see when was no drinking act?  If you see temperature graph on March 13th ~14th (When no drinking alarm sent),you can check there is no drinking pattern different from another day.LiveCare send alarm through sensing of no drinking pattern Let’s introduce the case of utilization of No drinking alarm. Let’s take a look at it!| Case 1) Contaminated water bottleHere is S Farm in Damyang. No drinking alarm of 6 cattle has been sent between 1 hour in same day.It means that 6 cattle are not drinking since the similar timing.Farmer checked the cattle as he got the alarm and cattle weren’t drink a water at all due to the contaminated water from the bowel in the bottle. | Case 2) No connection with water bottle “No drinking alarm” has sent to one of farm in Seosan in the next day of cleaning farm and moving cattle.As farmer got the alarm of LiveCare and checked up what’s happened in farm, he found a drinking bottle was connected to farm after cleaning. Thanks to “No drinking alarm”, it was possible to find a problem before something happened due to the fault of no drinking for a long time. | How to handle when “No drinking” alarm has sent?1. Check if cattle drink and eat without incident.2. In case of “No drinking” alarm was sent to various cattle in similar period such as the cases which was introduced,it will be helpful to check the around if drinking is fine in farm. LiveCare has full of cases. How is it?Is it has a value to take care of your cattle with LiveCare?Smart LiveCare AI system with 500bil data will track and notify to you.Also, LiveCare will accompany with farm from breeding management to farm management.
