Even with all the time savings and improved management of cow health and nutrition, Nicola says that confidence in his decision making and peace of mind are the two most important benefits that Allflex’s system has brought him. With the system, Nicola feels closer to the cows and better connected to the farm. He sums this up by saying, “With Allflex’s Heatime, I’m more sure of what I do.” With this confidence, Nicola looks forward to increasing profits and to expanding Nicola Renato’s herd size in the near future.
