‘Bull Proofing’ the Moocall HEAT

2021-03-02T14:31:52+00:00May 10, 2018|News|

Despite being so simple to use, the Moocall HEAT sensor is designed in a very sophisticated way.

It took hundreds of hours of careful testing tweaking and painstaking redesign to make sure you get the best heat detection experience technology can offer.

Almost 50 dairy farms were involved in testing the Moocall HEAT system throughout development.

Managing a work/life balance

2021-03-02T14:31:52+00:00April 17, 2018|News|

While running your farm and making sure you get the most out of it as a business as possible is important, it is also important not to overload yourself.

Managing a work/life balance is something many people struggle with, however with farmers it can be even more difficult as there is always something else you can be doing.

Part-time farmers in particular find it difficult to get a break, as most of their down time is spent in what is essentially a second job.

While it might seem like a necessary evil, it can actually have some drawbacks that will make you question whether it is worth it.

Advice on teaser bulls by vet Conor Melvin

2021-03-02T14:31:52+00:00April 13, 2018|News|

As breeding season closes in farmers are thinking more and more about heat detection and how they can achieve the highest possible conception rates.

There are a lot of things to be considered when you decide to rely on vasectomised bulls for heat detection, so we had a chat about it with Dublin agricultural vet Conor Melvin.

Moocall HEAT is most effective when used with a vasectomised bull and AI, but because of the 6 week waiting time after the procedure, now is the time to be buying them in, or getting the procedure done.

Reducing cost and increasing efficiency at breeding

2021-03-02T14:31:53+00:00April 4, 2018|News|

When it comes to running a cattle operation, scrimping isn’t really saving because you will end up paying for it later.

However, if you do things the right way, you can save yourself a lot of money and it won’t have an adverse effect on the performance of your operation.

Breeding is one place you can make savings, partly owing to the fact that you can prepare for it well in advance.
