Boviflag Self-adhesive Heat Detection Patches
Boviflag provides a high quality, effective and affordable self-adhesive heat detection patch. The solution to identifying the cows on heat.
Boviflag patches are currently the number one used patch in South Africa (Boviflags home of origin) and is quickly proving itself here on New Zealand Dairy Farms. The product consists of 4 easy to follow steps for use:
- Warm the patch. In cold conditions it is necessary to warm the detector before application. This allows for better adhesion.
- Prepare the site. Prepare the surface by removing any loose hair, dirt and dust using the tack cloth included in the package. Use a brush for heavily soiled areas.
- Position the patch. The heat detection patch should be attached between the hip and tail head of the cow, at a 90 degree angle (perpendicular) to the spine.
- Checking for results. When a cow has been mounted, the silver scratch-off ink is rubbed off by the mounting and will reveal the bright colour underneath. At least 50% of the bright colour should be removed to indicate standing heat.
Ready, Steady, Breed!
Michelle & William Burgess have been trialing our Boviflag Maxi Self-adhesive Heat Detection Patches on her yearlings. Here is what Michelle says about her experience with the product.
“We stuck our boviflags on the yearlings on Sunday in the heavy rain. Impressed they stuck on the wet coats so well. I didn’t bother grooming or drying the coats or warming them up. Just slapped them on. None came off”
The yearlings on the left are clearly not on heat, while the yearlings on the right are. Bright colours, superior quality and the best price is what makes Boviflag a no brainer.
The two cows at the back on the right as you can see are not yearlings. William(Bill) & Michelle uses CowManager to detect heat on the rest of their herd. If you look closely you can see the CowManager ear tag.
We are very proud to be bringing such a high quality product to New Zealand Dairy farmers. Thank you for sharing your story with us Michelle.
