    From the moment your calf hits the ground, the quality of the dam's colostrum begins to drop. As you can see in graph (a), colostrum quality drops by 35% in the first 12 hours.

    To ensure your calf is getting the best quality colostrum, you need to be there as soon as calving happens to collect your cow's first milk.

    Colostrum

    Graph (a)

    In the hours and minutes after calving, not only does colostrum quality drop, but the calf's ability to absorb nutrients drops too.

    As you can see in graph (b), after 12 hours, a calf can only absorb a quarter of the benefits from colostrum that it would have in the first 2 hours.

    Graph (b)

    Colostrum absorption is paramount to getting a calf to survive as their near non-existent immune system needs that protection.

    Take into consideration that 1 in 5 of all calf deaths are from disease-related illness. Much of this is preventable, and with the Moocall Calving Sensor you can be there early to take the necessary steps in protecting your calf.

    Graph (c)

    Early involvement can make a huge difference in disease prevention in calves, but another area it can make a huge difference in is assisting calving.

    Graph (d) shows that 95% of calves survive when timely intervention is provided by a farmer. Sometimes your cow or heifer needs that bit of help when the calf isn't presenting properly or if their bodily condition doesn't allow for an easy calving.

    95%

    Graph (d)

    65% of all calf deaths can be attributed to Dystocia (difficult birth brought about by malpresentation of the calf or size of the uterus) .

    This can be prevented in many cases by early intervention - an advantage you can get from The Moocall Calving Sensor.

    This non-invasive, tail mounted sensor gathers hundreds of pieces of data a second. It can accurately predict when your cow is most likely to give birth by measuring tail movement patterns triggered by labour contractions. When they reach a certain level of intensity over a period of time it then sends an SMS text alert directly to your cell phone on average 1 hour prior to calving.
