German company Agrocom, part of the Claas Group, launches an improved version of Supersow, a data management system with online applications.
Using an online handheld, data on the group housed sows with ear tags can be added and will be available real-time in the company computer.
The system is an upgraded version of an earlier data management system, in which a PDA needed to be synchronised manually. The system allows for a direct contact with external parties like e.g. feed suppliers – which leads to a rapid and accurate service.
Being an element of the ‘System Pig’, it is available in several languages, including German and English. (http://www.agrocom.com)
