Automatic recording, eating and rumination activity, direct observation


Automatic health monitoring plays an important role in dairy farms. In this study on monitoring of dairy cow. Cows are considered as a sign of divine and it gives milk. The idea is to monitor the cows to prevent the identify behavior of cows and disease. Rumination is one of the important activity for cows and helps in monitoring cow health. It is easy to monitor the activity of a single cow but it is a difficult task to monitor in a huge level such as cattle farm/dairy circle. Health monitoring in dairy cows is gaining more and more importance. One indicator to recognize imbalance is rumination action. A few methods have been produced for recording example time and intensity of rumination. The goal of this project was to compare rumination records in pressure sensors. The pressure sensor used to record the rumination this device coordinated in the halter of the noseband .The analysis variables are number and duration of separate rumination, sound, eating and other phases. The recording of rumination time eight hours were assessed and compared irregularly with direct observation.
