Summary

In May 2013, Soc. Agricola Cerri Pietro, Rinaldo e figli began using the Heatime® H System with a radio frequency anenna with the heat detection function. The system is used for its heifers.

SCR071-13 E Customer Cerri H LD -1"We decided to adopt an electronic control system because our heifers were moved to a different structure and thus we missed many heats,"
says Maria Cerri, Assistant at Soc. Agricola Cerri Pietro, Rinaldo e figli.

Learning to use the system was very quick and easy. "It is easy to use and to install, all you need is a 220V power socket. No additional software is necessary," continues Cerri.

Soc. Agricola Cerri Pietro, Rinaldo e figli chose the solution offered by SCR because, in comparison to other competing electronic control devices, it is easier to manage the farm's heifers.

Thanks to SCR Heatime® H LD, the farmers are now able to detect heats, even while they are away, and the heifers that end up diagnosed are impregnated in more than 90% of the cases. The dairy farm no longer resorts to injections to induce heats and, with a reduced investment cost, it has sped up the reproductive cycle of its heifer
