Abstract Biosensor technology can offer the livestock industry new types of monitoring and measuring devices of which the specificity, sensitivity, reproducibility, speed and ease of use exceed the current technology. Biosensors can be applied to the detection and identification of infectious diseases in livestock, contaminants and toxins in feed, therapeutic drug residues in animal husbandry and oestrus detection. Our team is applying biosensor technology to the livestock industry by developing a fully automated ovulation prediction system for dairy cows. The results from field-tests show that the progesterone biosensor can characterize the ovulation cycle of cows and detect pregnancy.
