DelPro™ Activity meters

Improve herd health and increase reproduction results. DelPro BioModels turn the behaviour of each animal into knolwedge. Knowing the status of each animal empowers you to achieve your reproduction targets by identifying cows in heat. Finding sick cows will also ensure you maintain high standards of animal welfare. With DeLaval Activity Meters you are monitoring your cows, even when you are not there.

  • Find cows and heifers in heat
  • Reduce reproduction costs
  • Identify cows in early stage of ill health

Key Benefits

Automatic decisions

DelPro controls your sort gates to automatically select cows based on your criteria. You choose when to sort, using the data recorded by Activity Meters. Your cows will be ready for insemination when you need them to be. Cows with low activity indicating possible health issues can also be separated, ready for your vet check.

Inseminate on time

The optimum insemination window is 8 to 16 hours after the onset of standing heat. DelPro accurately identifies the start of standing heat and notifies you of the best time to breed each cow, giving you the greatest chance of insemination success.

A constant eye on cow health

When a cow's activity level declines, it is often an indication of illness or lameness. DelPro monitors each cow's activity and alerts you when your attention is needed.

Help to reduce reproduction costs

Accurately identifying heat and the ideal time to inseminate a cow, helps save time and money. Independent research from Neubrandenburg University (Germany) and the FARME Institute (USA) showed that DelPro with Activity Meters reduced days open by up to 12 days, compared with conventional heat detection methods.

Works with

Daily movements tell you a lot about an animal’s current heat and health status.

DelPro uses data recorded by Activity Meters to carry out advanced statistical analysis of her movement during the day and compares her current movement with what was expected of her. This BioModel is used to predict her heat status giving you accurate heat-status for every cow. In addition, whilst knowing her current movement status we can also predict the health status. A decreased movement indicates potential health issue.

With the DeLaval Activity Meter System and DelPro Farm Management system, important activity information can be instantly relayed to you on individual cow behavior, no matter how large your farm is. It is also possible to use the DeLaval Activity Meter System in non-milking animals (ie. heifers and dry cows). DelPro Farm Manager allows combining the activity data with much more information coming from other DeLaval sensors (as milk meters), this is a very powerful tool to boost your farm to the next level of productivity.
