As part of Agriland’s #FarmFree competiton an SCR Heatime Heat Detection and Health Monitoring System worth €8,500 is up for grabs.

Agriland has teamed up with some of the best-known agricultural brands and manufacturers to launch what is, we believe, the best farming give away in the country.

The SCR Heatime system is one of the top reproduction and health systems in Ireland, with over 735 dairy, 33 suckler beef and over 350 Lely Robotic farms nationwide using the system.

Using a tag embedded with sensors that is fitted to the cows collar, the system can identify changes in normal activity and behaviour around estrus.

Data is transmitted every 20 minutes using long distance radio frequency technology.

This prize will include
  • 20 Long Distance Collars.
  • One Base station including a Heatime Monitor and Antennae.
  • One day full farm Installation.
  • Two hours system training.
  • Full five year warranty on the collars.

The system will pick up sick cows and identify those in heat while saving the farmer money while preventing the need for tail painting.

It also lessens the need for farmers to visually observe cows and reduces the likelihood of cows being late or empty at the end of the breeding system.

The system is sponsored by the Efficient Farm Systems which is based in Mullingar Co. Westmeath, who are distributors of animal health and monitoring technology in Ireland.

Ideal for dairy or suckler beef farmers the system can provide information to the farmer through the free Healthy Cow 24 App which allows the farmer to have remote access to the herd.
