SCR Heatime survey results - conducted by Prof. Wolfgang Heuwieser from University of Berlin
Estrus detection in dairy cattle: Changes after the introduction of an automated accactivity monitoring system?
In context of the study farmers using an automated activity monitoring (AAM) system called
Heatime were surveyed on estrus detection practices. The aim of the study was to gain an
overview of the usual estrus detection methods and especially to learn about the practical
aspects of that system.
Clinical relevance: The results show that the Heatime system is a well accepted estrus detection
aid and has the potential to reduce the time needed for estrus detection and might potentially
reduce the use of hormones.
