Activity monitors are an effective tool to detect heat and improve your herds reproductive success rate. Research indicates the average estrus cycle lasts up to 32 hours. Optimal insemination time is 10 hours after the onset of estrus. The CowScout S activity monitoring system gives you around the clock monitoring and immediate reporting capabilities that can be sent directly to your computer, tablet, smart phone, etc. Overall implementing an activity monitoring system like CowScout S will reduce labor, increase pregnancy rates, decrease days open, and reduce the need for hormone treatments.
