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.”
