Using Technology to Improve Herd Fertility

Good heat detection is key to achieving good fertility in dairy herds.  Many forms of heat detection aids are available, the most sophisticated being automated devices which record & monitor animal activity to predict heats.  In this video you will learn more about automated heat detection and see how it has been implemented successfully on one farm with positive results.  Automated calving detectors are also helping to increase the number of live calves born, particularly in the beef herd, we will also have a look at how these work in practice.
