With activity monitoring you can get fast, accurate breeding information whenever you need it - and be sure cows are bred during peak heat. Proper heat detection will lead to improve pregnancy rates and reproductive performance, along with greater long-term profitability.
Reproduction is the No. 1 reason for culling cows on today's dairies.
Activity monitors from GEA Farm Technologies automatically and accurately detect activity in 2-hour intervals. When linked to DairyPlan C21 software, this new monitoring system allows dairy producers to improve pregnancy rates while saving on time, labor, and the cost of wasted breedings.
Plus, activity monitoring also detects inactive cows, automatically alerting the herdsperson when a cow's activity falls below her normal levels. This can help identify potentionally sick or lame cows 12-24 hours before typical visible signs are present.
