(SMT System Patents Pending)


The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM, invented by Dave Stampe, Sioux Falls South Dakota (patents pending) offers busy dairy producers a completely automated method to identify and segregate animals ready for insemination or needing vet checks. The SYSTEM was first released at the World Dairy Expo, 2019.

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM reduces labor, eliminates unreliable “gut instinct” identification, improves breeding cycles, and lowers animal stress. It also reduces overhead costs by lowering open days thereby reducing semen needed and the labor required now being spent on extra inseminations. The system has patents pending.

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM is powered by COGNEX Machine Vision Technology. When cows or heifers pass through the system the COGNEX equipment identifies a preset pattern (COGNEX pat-match) meaning the animal has been mounted multiple times, the drafting gate then opens automatically to sort that animal into a pen with other animals ready for insemination.

The COGNEX equipment does even more!

It also identifies A.I.TAGS SMT DRAFTING TAGS. A tag manually attached by the herdsman when an animal needs to be auto drafted for a vet check. The system can auto draft those animals to a separate pen from those animals already sorted for breeding.

The A.I.TAGS SMT SYSTEM works for the producers 365 days a year, not only for breeding!

When it comes to heat detection, dairy producers need actions that deliver profits.” A.I.TAGS SMT SYSTEM is easy to use! It's the only Plug and Play heat detection and sorting system of is kind!

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM offers EIGHT distinct advantages:

Advantage #1: Labor Reduction

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM reduces labor by eliminating the need to identify dairy cows in estrus by sight. No matter what visual system is used, other systems rely on visual identification by humans. The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEMS requires no technical training. Simply apply A.I.TAGS and watch the cows and heifers line up to be inseminated.

Advantage #2: Eliminate “Gut Instinct”

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM eliminates gut instinct by removing the human from the decision process; The COGNEX Machine Vision Technology  NEVER makes a mistake! The instant COGNEX decision eliminates both false positives and false negatives.

Advantage #3: Improved Breeding Cycles

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM improves breeding cycles by eliminating the chance that the dairy herdsman will miss an insemination opportunity. Reducing open days means more accuracy with calving dates. Each morning or evening, the producer will find a pen of animals ready for service that are in the “12 Hour Rule” of breeding.

Advantage #4: Lower Animal Stress

The A.I.TAGS SMT™ SYSTEM reduces animal stress by reducing the frequency of handling and examination by humans. Milk production is easier to control when animals can avoid stress.This also reduces the chance of injury to both the animal and the herdsman, especially with inexperienced farm hands.

Advantage #5: Use Less Semen

The A.I.TAGS SMT SYSTEM will allow you to reduce your costs of semen. You will inseminate your cows at the right time reducing open days.

Advantage #6: Lower Billable Hours

Using less semen means fewer hours spent doing AI or fewer hours billed by your AI technician. Adds more profit to your bottom line!

Advantage #7: Lower Your Overhead Costs

The A.I.TAGS SMT SYSTEM's accuracy will increase conception percentages, reduce open days and result in using less semen.

Advantage #8: Buy Factory Direct

We are proud to offer a unique approach of marketing the A.I.TAGS SMT SYSTEM. We call it Back to the Basics, imagine that!

You probably noticed in our pictures that our system is mobile. We're so sure that when you see how simple and foolproof our system is,  you will buy it! Call now to set up an onsite demonstration at your location. 

Better yet, order now and start increasing your profits today!

A.I.TAGS SMT SYSTEM is the world’s first and only “Rub-Off” all automatic heat detection system.

Proper Placement for A.I.TAGS

Ideal placement of A.I.TAGS is between the hip bones and tailhead area. Protect A.I.TAGS from tail swatting with increased fly populations. Place the tag where the tail cannot reach it, closer to the tailhead. This will also eliminate the ends of the tags from lifting because of tail rubs. 



A.I.TAGS SMT are the only bovine heat detection tags in the world that reflect UV light! They are the brighter than any other tag used today.

Insemination guides under the images above are a suggestion only. They are intended only as a guide on how to best use A.I.TAGS.
