The next-generation automatic heat detection system significantly improves pregnancy rates and fertility performance, and reduces operating costs. The most accurate system on the market, AfiAct II provides:

  • the highest possible heat detection rate, lowest rate of false alerts
  • results updated every hour
  • behavior data anywhere on the farm 
  • a scalable, adaptable system


AfiAct II supports herds of any size. Able to integrate with Afimilk’s farm and milking parlor management system, AfiAct II is accessible from the web on any type of device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop. It is easy to install, works with an off-the-shelf Wi-Fi router and requires no network cabling. AfiAct II is available as a standalone system.

Data integrity is essential for decision-making on the farm. AfiTag (Pedometer and Pedometer Plus) is a dual-purpose electronic device that reliably and accurately performs animal ID and gauges behavior patterns.


 

AfiAct II’s calving alert service is using 24/7 cow behavior monitoring analyzed by advanced algorithms implemented in the AfiFarm management software. As a result, it provides alerts with high accuracy (typically, the actual calving takes place within 4 hours from the received alert). Although in some cases a calving event can be missed, a false alarm is extremely rare (under 10%). The timeline for the system's alerts is as follows:

  1. First alerts – Alerts the farmer to when calving is about to start. He or she can then prepare by moving the expecting cow to the calving area. High risk calving, such as twins or cows that are inducted, is noted in order to arrange for special care.
  2. Second alerts – Alerts the farmer to prolonged calving and the risk of dystocia to determine whether intervention is needed. Preparing early for intervention may save both the calf and the cow.
  3. After calving – The newborn calf must now be moved to a safe environment and fed with colostrum milk. The cow must be taken care of as well.
