CowSigns is a software product designed for handheld PDA devices enabling users to record cow observations (responses to their environment) while on-farm and visually display results to customers using internet reporting. CowSigns was originally developed to assist ABS Technical Services to improve herd performance through identification of specific on-farm bottlenecks. It measures how various cow environment factors may affect overall herd performance. ABS strongly believes in providing a proper environment for dairy cattle because we know that comfortable, healthy cows prove more profitable and live longer lives. For several years, we have been working with our customers to maximize reproduction and milk production, while concentrating on what the cow is telling us.
