Fancy winning a €5,000 heat detection system?

AgriLand is once again delighted to offer farmers the opportunity to farm free for a year. Now in its third year, our Farm Free Competition has grown to be even bigger than ever.

The winner of this year’s competition will take home a whole host of prizes; including a Smaxtec Bolus system – worth over €5,000 to keep and use on his/her farm.

The Smaxtec system is a hi-tech, smart bolus that measures temperature, activity and pH. This is a heat detection, health monitoring, pH and calving system. The prize consists of 25 smart boli, a base station, a repeater (range extender), an applicator and installation.

What does the system provide?
  • Heat detection alerts;
  • Calving alerts;
  • Early illness detection;
  • Increase in feed conversion efficiency through pH monitoring (separate Premium bolus);
  • Heat stress alerts;
  • Water intake monitoring.

With a four-year warranty, 95% accuracy and a life expectancy of five-to-six years, this exciting new product offers so many benefits to both beef and dairy farmers.

Regardless of being full or part-time, the system gives farmers health, reproductive and labour-saving advantages.

This prize is sponsored by Efficient Farm Systems – the Mullingar-based distributor of Smaxtec in both the north and south of Ireland.

Alan Heaney of Efficient Farm Systems said: “It’s a plug and play system that’s easily installed and provides simple reports.

It’s ideal for the full-time dairy farmer and part-time suckler farmer who is away from the farm all day, every day.

“With the free Messenger App, the health status of the herd can be viewed from anywhere,” he said.
