“Before we installed SenseHub, there was a lot of guesswork involved in heat detection. Since putting the collars on, it’s black and white.”

Warren Gallagher, Owner

Challenges

With 100 extra cows added almost at once, Warren needed a way to better manage his herd. He was missing heats, had difficulty making good breeding decisions, and found the work increasingly laborious.

System

Allflex SenseHub® with cSense Flex neck tags and “Advanced” application plan.

Benefits

“Once we put the collars on the cows, we saw instant results. We got an extra 30 cows calving this year, and I’ve definitely seen more milk in the vat because I had
those extra 30 cows calving.”

At a Glance

  • Company:Moyola Illawarra Cattle Stud
  • Location:Clunes, New South Wales, Australia
  • Herd Size:240 cows, predominantly Aussie Reds

Summary

Along with identifying cows in heat, SenseHub also helped in terms of timing. “Normally if you see them jumping in the arvo, you would join them the following morning. But this system tells you when. Some cows need a full 24 hours as their early heat is prolonged, rather than 12 hours.”
