Scanned a dairy herd in County Waterford this evening where pedometers are placed on the cows as aid to heat detection. In my opinion, pedometers are an aid in heat detection and should not be used as the sole method of heat detection in cows. Heats can be missed. Cows can be AI’d incorrectly time-wise. Stockman ship skills slip because farmers will not spend time watching the cows.
