Reducing Calving Interval and Improving Herd Health and Productivity

“The Heatime System works like a mobile phone or iPhone. If you can use an iPhone you can use Heatime.”

Col Cowan, Owner and Operator

Challenges

Col wanted to catch illnesses related to rumination quicker, to reduce the impact on cows’ health and improve productivity. All of this Col was hoping to do whilst saving time and reducing the labour load on his workers.

System

Allflex SCR Heatime® HR System

Benefits

Rumination monitoring helps Col get an early indication of developing health issues. If a cow’s rumination numbers drop to 200 minutes or less, he checks the cow for acidosis, respiratory trouble, and ketosis.
