Professor Mottram is based at the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester and has a wealth of experience in researching and developing sensor technologies such as robotic milking machines and rumen boluses.

The webinar takes a look at what is going on in the rumen and how a clear understanding can assist with better nutrition and feeding management which can be facilitated by using pH boluses. It looks at how rumen pH boluses can be administered to a cow to measure and record pH every minute and the data stored.

Listen to Prof Mottram explain the benefits of rumen monitoring, the different technologies available and what the pH and temperature data can tell you and how this can be used to improve dairy herd management.

The audience who tuned in live had the opportunity to ask Professor Mottram practical questions about using boluses and these can be heard at the end of the webinar.
