Ensure your Heat Detection is Easy & Accurate!
The best heat detection programmes, both before and during mating, combine planning and observation with effective heat detection aids.
ESTROTECTTM Heat Detectors should be applied to all cows to give you and your staff the best possible chance of identifying and recording cows on heat, particularly those quieter cows that may be missed during paddock observations.
CRV Ambreed recommends ESTROTECTTM Heat Detectors – not only are these heat detection patches easy to apply and excellently priced, but they provide more accuracy than tail paint as they are seen and read differently from cow to cow; especially if multiple staff are involved in the process.
ESTROTECTTM Heat Detectors work perfectly alongside paddock observation – they’re weather proof and the bright colours can be seen from a distance.
InCalf research has shown that conception rates are highest amongst herds that are using heat detection aids, rather than relying on observation alone. Once, tail paint was the standard, today innovative farmers have traded the paint tin for better options such as ESTROTECTTM Heat Detectors, telling us that “ESTROTECTTM Heat Detectors are very easy to read and can be seen from a distance. They are not affected by false riding or the cattle rubbing on trees”.
The reliability, accuracy, ease of application and sheer visibility of ESTROTECTTM Heat Detectors make them an essential tool for heat detection, especially for large herds in which staffing and stock pressures make this important task a challenge.
Perhaps it’s time for you to update your Heat Detection toolkit to ensure easy and accurate heat detection, saving the paint for the house!
