MooCall HEAT

Posted in Category(ies):  Company NewsOther NewsTipsDairyBeef

Progressive Genetics will be supplying the Moocall HEAT (as soon as they come available - early next year: January/February) but 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.
