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.

Managing a work/life balance

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.

2021-02-19T11:09:43+00:00April 17, 2018|Breeding|

One of the biggest deterrents farmers have before investing in a teaser bull is the price of bringing one in.

But from a business perspective, it is wrong to look at it in that way. This isn’t sinking your money into something. Think of it as a deposit on an even bigger saving down the line.

Teaser Bulls - bulls who undergo a vasectomy procedure to render them effectively sterile - are commonly used in heat detection. Although they cannot impregnate any of the cattle, they can still pick up heats just as well as any stock bull.
