Oestrus Detection Farming Note

An average UK dairy herd with 100 cows loses over £18,000 per year or 3.14ppl due to infertility. It is often difficult on busy farms to take the time to spot cows on heat. With such financial costs associated with incorrect or late recognition of oestrus cows, it is vital to use reliable and effective methods of heat detection.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Why is heat detection a problem?
  • Heat detection and record keeping
  • Visual signs of heat
  • A guide to heat detection aids and fertility management systems

Issued September 2007.
