CRV Estrotect™ Heat Detectors

Product benefits

  • Accurate
  • Easy to use, self-adhesive
  • Stays in place in rain, snow or heat

Accurate heat detection is critical to the success of artificial insemination (AI). CRV Estrotect™ Heat Detectors provide the most accurate way to detect a cow on heat.

They are a business card sized patch that sticks onto the cow’s rump. With each mount, the surface will gradually turn from silver to a bright colour alerting the farmer she is
ready for AI.

Use CRV Estrotect™ Heat Detectors to help teach farm staff† to identify when a cow is on heat.

EASY TO USE AND ACCURATE!

  • Only one patch per cycle is required compared with alternative tail paints and paint sticks, which must be applied or touched up daily.
  • While other detectors are activated by one mount (sometimes for as little as three seconds) CRV Estrotect™ Heat Detectors work gradually exposing the indicator colour.

HOW THEY WORK

APPLY IN 5 EASY STEPS

  1. Warm
    Heat activates the adhesive. Store at or above human body temperature (37ºC) when about to apply.
  2. Site
    An ideal location for placement is between hip and tail head, perpendicular to the spine.
  3. Brush
    Brush with the grain of the hair to remove dirt, dust and shedding or moulting hair. It’s recommended to only use the ESTROTECT Rubber Brush.
  4. Clean
    Clean the area with an ESTROTECT Cleaning Cloth to completely remove any remaining dirt, dust or sand.
  5. Apply
    Place detector across spine of cow, press down firmly and rub into hair with bare fingers.

Dairy farmer Jeffrey Price has been using CRV Estrotect™ Heat Detectors for the last two mating seasons. He currently milks over 400 cows on his family’s farm in Thames and says they are quick and easy to use.   “Some farmers worry that the patch might come off when the cows are mounted, but they don’t. They stay on the cow and do the job without fuss or mess. In Spring last year, I tried tail paint and CRV Estrotect™ Heat Detectors together to see what would respond and what wouldn’t. Estrotects went off first allowing us to mate the cows at the start of their cycle, giving the insemination the best chance of success.” said Mr Price.
 I don’t touch paint anymore.”
