Automate Heat detection with Moocall HEAT

Posted in Category(ies):  Company NewsTipsDairyBeef

Progressive Genetics are supplying the Moocall HEATs, you can order from today (with a deposit). Moocall HEAT is a one stop shop heat detection system for the largest of dairy farms to small scale part-time suckler farms, Moocall HEAT is the complete package from the collar for the bull to the App: Breedmanager, this exciting new system has been designed for Irish farmers.

How does it work?

The collar is worn by a vasectomised bull (teaser bull) and Moocall eartags are attached to all cows and heifers. The collar then uses cow/bull proximity, mounting behaviour and bull activity levels to determine to an extremely high level of accuracy when a cow or a heifer is in heat.

HerdApp Going from Strength to Strength

Posted in Category(ies):  Company NewsOther NewsTipsDairyBeef

AgriNet’s HerdApp is now entering its second Spring on the market and already has thousands of Irish Farmers using the app. The true value of HerdApp is really coming to the fore, as HerdApp the New Standard in Farm Management Software, is enabling Irish farmers to farm smart, particularly as they start to prepare for a busy Spring.

Farmer feedback is really important to the AgriNet team, as is continued improvement of HerdApp, looking at the app as it stands currently, Cork dairy farmer Denis Finnegan of Lee Valley Farm (Herd pictured below at grass last June), says that HerdApp is "simple to use" has "excellent reports that you can multi filter on" and a "live link to ICBF which makes it easy to access your milk and EBI data". "I see it (HerdApp) as a management tool on the farm, it's a bonus that it does all your compliance as well!" (follow Denis on Twitter here).

Christmas gifts for farmers

Posted in Category(ies):  Tips

While we think the greatest gift a farmer can get is profitable, trouble-free cattle, that is something they can work on themselves during breeding season. AS its Christmas there may be something a little more fitting out there:

The gift of less stress: HerdApp

HerdApp takes the stress out of calf registration, record keeping and Bord Bia inspections. You can order a gift subscription here

The New Standard in Farm Apps Bord Bia Inspections

Posted in Category(ies):  Company NewsOther NewsTipsDairyBeef

AgriNet HerdApp is The New Standard in Farm Apps

The stress and hassle of Bord Bia inspections can be easily avoided with the use of HerdApp from AgriNet. As mentioned previously HerdApp focuses on three main functions – Breeding & AI (which is sponsored by Progressive Genetics and completely free to all Irish farmers), Drugs & Farm reports.

Because HerdApp has a live link with ICBF, all data flows seamlessly throughout all devices associated with your herd number. This means, if you have a relief milker, calf rearer or general labourer on your farm you will always be compliant for inspections. It doesn’t matter who administers an injection to a sick calf, or batch doses the maiden heifers, everyone with access to the app can record these administrations and everyone else will know which animal has received remedies.

The New Standard in Farm Apps Milk Recording Feature

Posted in Category(ies):  Company NewsDairyBeef

AgriNet HerdApp is The New Standard in Farm Apps

AgriNet have launched a brand new farm management app that allows for cross compliance & inspections. Also known as Irish Farm Computers, AgriNet was formed in 1997 and have over 20 years’ experience in Farming Software.

Most dairy farmers across the country at the moment are probably planning their last milk recording of the year in the coming weeks. Decisions will be made on cull cows, perhaps even more under the microscope than in other years with fodder tight for some this winter, for most there won’t be any passengers.

HerdApp's live link between ICBF ensures all information flows seamlessly between the two, meaning all historic & up to date milk recordings come down to HerdApp automatically. The same day you get your text highlighting the high SCC cows in your herd, the milk recording report will be uploaded to HerdApp.

From here you can view and filter all aspects of the milk recording report- for example you can sort by KGs milk solids, % fat or yield. In your ‘jobs list’ menu, cows with SCC over 200 will be highlighted so you don’t have to trawl through reams of information to find problem cows, they are presented to you directly from ICBF.
