The HK birth alarm system
Targeted monitoring using an electronic measuring and reporting system
The HK birth alarm system for cows is an inexpensive way of avoiding birth losses and ensuring planned yields.
By saving just one calf the HK birth alarm system will have paid for itself. If you want to avoid losing calves, the use of the birth alarm system is one purchase which will benefit you in many ways. With today’s highly-bred animals, births without the help of the breeder and the constant monitoring of pregnant cows associated with it is unthinkable.
Since however it is not generally possible to determine the time of birth precisely, round-the-clock surveillance of the cowshed is still part of the breeder’s daily routine. Nevertheless there are often serious complications before and during birth; surprise births before or after the calculated time, inadequate contractions of the uterus during parturition or narrow birth canals are also the order of the day, as are errors in position or stance. This leads to considerable losses of young animals and the associated financial losses, which considerably reduce the yield of breeding farms.
