A.S. Series 72-3
The key to any successful artificial insemination program is doing an adequate job of detecting cows in heat. Not only is heat detection difficult for the inexperienced person, it requires considerable time and labor.
There are devices available on the market which are designed to reduce labor requirements associated with heat detection. One of these devices is the heatmotmt detector called KaMar® (KaMar Inc., Steamboat Springs, Colorado).
The purpose of this study was to compare the KaMar patch to a person experienced in detecting yearling heifers in heat.
