How it works
The world’s best heat detector is a bull, and Moocall HEAT harnesses his natural ability to achieve a rate of heat detection accuracy previously unseen.
Unlike other heat detection products on the market, Moocall HEAT focuses on the bull; it zeroes in on his movements around the cow to determine whether the cow is in heat.
The system comes in two parts; a collar and Moocall RFID tags. Attach the collar to your teaser or stock bull, and attach the RFID tags to the cows and heifers.
Then, let the bull into the field and do his work. All of his movement and activity with the breeding herd is recorded.
Access all the information your collar collects on your smartphone or tablet on the Moocall Breedmanager app; download it free on the App store or Google Play store.
You will also receive SMS notifications on up to two phones.
Like the Moocall Calving sensor, Moocall HEAT operates over GSM and can work anywhere in the world with a 3G network.
Moocall HEAT is practical in that it requires minimal handling of the bull; the battery lasts for up to 60 days so you can fit it to your bull and not worry about it again until breeding is finished.
Moocall HEAT costs €1,500, well below any other electronic heat detection system on the market.
It works equally well on suckler and dairy herds and, unlike other products, was designed primarily for breeding detection.
After 12 months there is an annual charge of €285 + VAT to keep your sensor operational.
