Still watching for heats? There’s a better way.
Problem cows become less of a problem
Activity monitoring systems not only work well for cows showing heat, but they also work for cows not showing heat due to environmental or metabolic factors. Things like floor surface, sore feet or legs, heat stress or ketosis could prevent a cow from showing heat. Or, a cow may be annovular (not cycling).
Activity monitoring data can help you identify these problem cows quickly. Then you can dig deeper into the data and check the cow to determine the potential cause of the problem and correct the situation. The data gives you insights to make a management decision to get a cow bred as quickly as possible.
Activity monitoring systems help catch cows in heat and take early action when there’s a problem. They help improve reproductive outcomes and put dollars in your pocket.Find your distributor ›
