“With Heatime, we now have real-time information, and reproductive performance has improved immensely – which is what I expected.”
Peter Garratt, Co-owner & Manager
“I knew that our reproductive performance was not as good as it could be. The target is to keep a flat line in our milk production. But we’ve always struggled to have a fresh enough herd.”
Allflex Heatime® HR System with HR LD tags for real-time heat detection, health monitoring and identification.
Twice daily, at the start of each milking session, Peter checks the Heatime terminal and assesses the Heat Report and Health Report. From there, he makes decisions about joining.

When it comes to recommending the Allflex Heatime System to other farmers, Peter is clear: “A dry cow doesn’t make milk, and the most important thing is to get them pregnant again. Heatime is one of the best investments that we’ve made on the farm over the years. I’d recommend it to anyone.”
