HerdInsights uses a multi-metric analysis on each individual cows behaviour enabling more accurate and timely heat detection. Fertility is one of the major factors affecting the efficiency of any dairy herd. It can account for one of the major costs of production and also represents an area where significant improvements can be made.
Poor dairy herd fertility is recognised as having many consequences, both direct and indirect. Most importantly:
Loss of milk production through too many dry days or peak yield traded for later lactation yield.
Disruption to the calving season and milk production pattern.
Loss of mature animal milk yields through early culling.
Extra veterinary costs.
Reduced calf sales.
Additional AI costs.
Enforced culling resulting in more replacements being reared or bought.
Loss of valuable genetics.
Linkage with other problems such as nutritional imbalances and production shortfalls.

- Pre-Breeding Analysis
- Identify Cystic & Aneostrus Cows
- Pregnancy Check List
- Estrus Detection
- Estrus activity level
- Resting time
- Embryo Loss Detection
- Typical Results
- 6 Week Submission Rate = 100%
- Increase in 6 Week In Calf Rate = 20%
- Reduction in Calving Interval = 17 Days
- 1% increase in 6 Week In calf rate = €8.22 per cow per annum gain
- 20% increase = €12,600 gain for a herd of 77 cows
