In June 2013 the Azienda Corte Fabbrica dairy farm installed the SCR Heatime® H LD System on both its heifers and cows.
It had been interested in the use of electronic control devices for some time, and eventually chose SCR's system for its avant
Thanks to the installation of just one radio-frequency antenna, the system is able to monitor the animals every 20 minutes, no matter where they are.
The system is absolutely simple to use: "Even the vet uses the system, since the unit is always on and it supplies updated data in real time, which is easily accessible," says Alberto Angelini, Owner of Azienda Corte Fabbrica.
While in the past the farm relied only on visual monitoring, and missed many heats as a result, once it began using SCR Heatime® HLD, it has increased the rate of heat detections. It has also recorded perfect timing in its fertilizations and is quicker to detect irregular heat cycles.
