Dairy Cow Heat Detectors. Accurate and reliable heat detection is essential in a profitable breeding programme and identifying cows in heat increases conception rates, reduces calving intervals and lowers insemination costs. Each detector has a positive impact on herd profitability. Missing a cow in heat costs as much as £4.60 a day, reducing the profitability of a herd*.
The reliable choice in identifying cows in heat. Kamar Heatmount™ Detectors give a clear indication of a cow in heat by turning bright red when mounted, which is clearly visible from a distance. Standing heat behaviour is the most reliable indication of a cow in heat, but with 70% showing the first signs of heat during the night, many night heats are missed without reliable heat detection. Kamar Heatmount™ Detectors work 24 hours a day and due to a uniquely pressure-sensitive design, are only activated by standing heat behaviour, not false mounting. Kamar Heatmount™ Detectors can be used after insemination to detect a return to heat and also to determine when cows return to cycling after calving. Kamar ink is red and is also available in blue cloth for additional management options. * SAC figures
