Protrack Drafter

Protrack Drafter


  • The Protrack Drafter system consists of an in-dairy rugged PC that utilises proven software and communicates directly with a durable drafting gate.
  • A reader positioned at the gate detects the animals EID tag, identifies the cow and drafts appropriately.
  • It is a very simple system to install, learn and operate.
  • Complemented by a drafting app, it is a simple stand-alone automated drafting unit.
  • The system is suitable for all shed designs and can integrate seamlessly with your on-farm practices.

In-Bail cow identification

  • Information about each cow is displayed automatically in real-time.
  • The milking staff can glance at the Protrack monitor at the ‘cups on’ or ‘cups off‘ position to know which cow they are dealing with, rather than having to look at its eartag.
  • Protrack will also provide you with an audio message to match your on-screen message, saving time and removing the need to continuously view the screen.
  • The decision to milk a cow could potentially cost you thousands of dollars if that cow is currently within an antibiotic withholding period. With Protrack, you’ll know as soon as the cow steps onto the milking platform if her milk needs to be withheld.
  • Protrack allows you to choose the information that you want to see about any of your cows in any bail. For example, the somatic cell count from her last herd test, recent reproductive history, or the groups in MINDApro she belongs to.
