Dairy farmer Alex Huisman is no stranger to milking three times a day. However, he fine-tuned the process, adding a third milking for 84 high production cows from his herd of 150 head.
A simple device underpinned by a complex algorithm can alert farmers via text message that a cow will calve within one hour.
