Empowering Dairy Farmers: The Story Behind Maternity Warden

Welcoming New Life on the Farm 

Calving is a time of anticipation and excitement on dairy farms around the United States. It’s a period when new calves are born, and a fresh lactation begins. However, amidst this joy and promise, there’s a stark reality —significant risks challenge both calves and their mothers during this transitional period. 

According to farm data, a staggering 7% of calves on U.S. dairy farms don’t make it past the first 48 hours of life. That’s 7 out of every 100 baby calves succumbing to the challenges of birth and the initial hours that follow. Moreover, the dams, or mother cows, fare just slightly better and often face the risk of permanent injury during calving. 

The need for a solution to mitigate these risks was clear, and it’s the driving force behind the creation of Maternity Warden. 


Introducing Maternity Warden: 24/7 Maternity Monitoring for Safer and Healthier Births 

A Vision for Compassion and Reliability 

Maternity Warden is a groundbreaking computer vision monitoring solution designed with compassion and reliability in mind. Powered by cutting-edge AI technology, it automatically, passively, and objectively monitors your herd, alerting you to cows in labor. This early identification of calving not only lowers stillborn rates but also reduces the time required for intervention, subsequently decreasing dystocia incidents. 

Imagine a world where cows receive timely assistance during labor, where their health and the health of their newborn calves are safeguarded, and where dairy farmers can sleep a little easier at night knowing their herd is being watched over with diligence.
