Halter is making waves in the dairy farming industry here in Aotearoa. The team of over 50 staff has created the current Halter collar. This clever collar produces sound waves that cows can respond to, and the innovative technology behind it is one of the first big leaps for dairy farming in many years.

A Hit with Farmers

Farmers all across the Waikato have been testing the collars with great success. They have been reporting great herd management, reduced hours, and increased cow health.

Halter is hoping to expand outside of the Waikato in 2021 and keep improving dairy farming in Aotearoa.
