"I look at the SenseHub app each morning to find out which cows are in heat and when they should be inseminated. It’s like having an extra set of eyes and ears, and if a cow starts calving or is showing signs of stress or ill health, my phone will alert me so that I can take prompt action."
Jim Fingland, Castle Douglas, Dumfries
"By alerting us to potential signs of ill health or distress – often before any physical symptoms have been displayed – SenseHub has enabled us to treat problems far earlier. As a result we’ve had fewer displaced abomasums, fewer cases of milk fever and fewer difficult calvings.”
Andrew Eastabrook, Hartpury University, Gloucestershire
"We have a better understanding of each cow’s health, heat and stress parameters and can act pre-emptively to combat problems such as lameness, mastitis and poor fertility. We’re detecting more heats which has enabled us to tighten our calving interval.”
Olly Read, Cullompton, Devon
"We’re saving £9-£15 per animal and still achieving a heat detection rate of 97.6%. Our insemination rate has risen by more than 10% and we’re making better use of sexed semen.”
Philippa MacTaggart, Crocketford, Dumfries
“We’re missing fewer silent heats and culling fewer animals due to fertility problems. We’re also using 10-20% less semen and have started using sexed semen from bulls which were previously beyond our budget."
Mike and Caroline Hawking, Beaworthy, Devon
