Simulation of panels colouring up
Our aim at Beacon is to take the guesswork out of heat detection and to provide you with easy to use and interpret heat detectors. With this aim in mind, we have updated our BULLING BEACON® and HEAT SEEKER® products with our patented Channel and Chamber system.
This unique design allows the side panels of both detectors to ‘colour up’ after the central bubble section is activated.
Subsequent mounts force the dye through channels into the chambered side panels. This gives the farmer increased visibility and an even stronger indication that multiple mounts have taken place.
If the dye has not migrated to the side panels it may be that the cow has only recently come into heat and insemination might be best left to the next milking, however, if the side panels are fully coloured the cow has most likely been bulling for some period of time and insemination may need to take place sooner.
