If you want to detect heat and get instantly informed of a silent heat is detected, an insemination results in success, or a abortion event, when the latter actually takes place, MilkingCloud and Actimoo represent the ideal pair as a marvellous herd tracking application tailored for these operations.
How does It Work?
The pedometer device accumulates data on all activities performed by the animal to which it is physically attached, according to a certain algorithm. It transposes the data on the antenna system with which it communicates at certain intervals.
Although it appears to purport an apparatus that is attachable to feet or legs judging by its nomenclature, the pedometer is attached to the necks of animals.
It works not solely relying on the number of steps, but detecting all movements of the animal. Thereby it is capable of detecting activity for animals getting upset where they are standing. This method is more efficient when used in support of observation method.
This modus operandi continues for 24 hours. By the time data arrives, the computer system will examine the previous habitual activity patterns of a particular animal, and issues a decision as to whether any symptoms of heat are present. Thereby it becomes possible for the system to effectively handle any symptoms of heat instantly.The result of symptomatic test will be revealed in an info note in an e-mail or SMS text message directed to the user or farm management.
Actimoo keeps a close track of differences in activities of farm animals, like increased activity and the mounting behaviour during heat. If the different activity than usual keeps continuing for a definite period of time, it automatically generates and sends messages through SMS to the farm/ranch owner.Detection of heat requires tracking of tens of varying parameters, depending on animal health and farm applications. A visual check should absolutely be performed on the animal whenever Actimoo warnings are received. Actimoo\'s rate of success varies in a range of 80 to 95%, depending on farm standards and animal\'s health.
No Need To Note Down
Your herd is under the control of Actimoo, online. You don’t have to write down dates of insemination, calving or the pregnancy check.
All Process Is Well In Hand
Actimoo and MilkingCloud take care of the entire process, including heat, insemination, yield of milk and treatment.
Insemination On Time
With the seasonable insemination you may improve your profit by maximizing the yield of milking and breeding.
For Maximising Performance at Your Dairy Farms...
Actimoo and MilkingCloud cooperate to deliver you the ability to auto-detect heat in cows. Moreover, you are informed on the instant of heat through an SMS message delivered to your cellphone.
Pedometers can be used repeatedly and recurrently on other animals until expiry of their useful lives. It is a recommended practice to leave Actimoo attached to the same animal throughout the gestation period. Doing so will help bringing the risk of an animal’s redeveloping heat, in potential cases of miscarriage, under control.
If a rancher can get one calf per each cow owned, this means that he grabbed the success. With proper insemination, there would not be any interruption in milk output. And proper insemination is only possible with efficient heat tracking.
Improve your Income (Output)!
Dairy cow breeding relies on the principle of getting one calf every year. In a not regularly calving herd, a profitable business is hardly mentionable by breeders. If the period of 1 year has already expired, daily loss in terms of yield is calculated to be around ₺ 7 or 8 (Milk estimated at 80 piastres). At the end of 45 to 60 days postpartum, the average cost of a missed heat ₺ 140 or 150. Actimoo allows you to grab the chance of eliminating this cost once and for all.
1. Silent Heat: MilkingCloud Heat Tracking System detects heat with a success rate of 89%, including sub estrus or silent heat.
2. 7x24 Monitor: The system works round the clock. No internet connectivity needed at your farm. It keeps track of all your cows both during the day and the night.
3. Automatic Warning: Heats detected are immediately reported to you via SMS in real time. You can confirm heat by performing a visual inspection.
Common Problems and Questions
Farm Owner and Executives
The greatest benefit, in my opinion, that Actimoo provides has been the insemination of the cow right on time. A notification was delivered over the Actimoo saying that your animal is at Heat state. When I attempted to take a closer look to the animal of concern, I did not observe any unusual jump or activity. So I called my veterinarian to perform a check. On examining the animal at site, my veterinarian said that the ovaries were in a perfectly good period.
I didn’t notice a thing although having made a careful observation for 3-4 hours. Yet when I went at another location for business, I received an incoming system message of increased activity in the same animal with the same number that I observed, over the Actimoo. Then I got shocked trying to figure how come had I not noticed. So I checked myself when I returned back, and saw that the animal was in good Heat state.
