France Farm, England

Olly Reed farms with his parents, Andrew and Wendy, at France Farm, Cullompton. In November 2016 they constructed a new dairy unit on greenfield land adjacent to the farm’s old buildings. 160 cows are housed there all year round and milked by three Lely robots.

“We have a better understanding of each cow’s health, heat and stress parameters and can act pre-emptively to combat problems such as lameness, mastitis and poor fertility.”

Olly Reed, Owner

Challenges

Monitoring heat and health with a small staff was an issue. Reed was looking at gathering yield and reproductive data throughout the entire production cycle

System

Allflex Heatime® Pro System with HRLDn tags for real-time heat detection and health monitoring

Benefits

The Heatime Pro System learns each individual cow’s activity parameters and enables even the faintest of heats to be detected.
