“We use HEAT SEEKER on our herd of 300 cows and also our heifers. We found them very easy to apply and with their bright colours it made it simple to identify cows on heat. We felt HEAT SEEKER contributed to our empty rate dropping from 17% to 8%. We will definitely be using HEAT SEEKER again”.
“Using HEAT SEEKER on the whole dairy herd and also on the yearling heifers has given us many benefits on farm. Having to apply up to 1000 heat patches during milking, the ease of application of the self-adhesive HEAT SEEKER is clearly ahead of other methods. The peel and stick method is easy and provides real stickability to the cow when applied. They are providing accurate selection of cows in heat and all staff are very confident when picking cows to be mated. The bright colours of pink, red and blue are easily seen and have made a crucial task that much easier since using the HEAT SEEKER”.
“The biggest influence on profitability on any dairy farm is pregnancy. If you can guarantee every cow will calve every 12-months, it has a huge bearing on your costings. It’s just near impossible to achieve, but the closer you can get to that, the more efficient your operation becomes. The HEAT SEEKER product certainly helps to achieve that.”
“I run 80 yearling heifers on a runoff 5km from the dairy unit…and see the heifers once a day. I tried HEAT SEEKER after being dissatisfied with other brands and I was thrilled with the results. Being self-adhesive, applying them was very easy with no mess and 100% retention. The Channel and Chamber system worked well. I will definitely use them again this season”.
