Cattle cultivation

Since many things are computerized here, I work like an office worker. I can give more attention to individual cows because I can leave much of the work to the machines.

I came here to

make this farm bigger.

I joined the company three years ago. My parents were dairy farmers, and I have been involved with cows ever since I graduated from an agricultural high school.

Actually, the president of the farm is a high school classmate of mine. My parents had a dairy farm but quit. I was working at a different farm when he asked me to set up the cultivation department to expand this farm.

Cultivation is the process of treating cows that have finished lactating about three months after giving birth, inseminating them, impregnating them, and managing them.

Each and every cow monitored by computer.
The computerized herd management system gathers information sent from sensors attached to the cow. The data is centrally controlled by the system. Early detection of estrus and poor body condition can be immediately received.
Even though we have such a large number of cows, we have only three people in charge of them.
When I arrive in the morning, I first use this system to check how the cows are doing. The system uses sensors to detect the unique movements of the cows when they are in heat. Determining the timing of estrus is most important.

A good combination of machines and human hands is the key.
We have a robotic feeding system, but we feed the smaller cows by hand and see how they do.
We start work around 7 a.m. and finish around 5 p.m.. I feel a bit like an office worker, haha!
I really enjoy working here.
I like the fact that we can share the results of our work with everyone, and see how the company can improve.
