How it works and what makes us better

Best Heat Detection

Best Heat Detection:
Most advanced algorithms for heat detection
The smartest fertility management software

AfiAct II solution helps you improve your pregnancy rate with the most accurate heat detection sensor yet:

  • Most sensitive: Consistently wining in detection benchmark tests
  • Most reliable: Extremely rare false alarms, despite the high quality detection
  • Proven: Validated with millions of animals, in 50 countries
  • Unique algorithms developed and tested specifically for Heifers, Cows in open barns, free-stall, and grazing regimes

A smart management system will help you optimize the work routines, flexibly adapt to versatile farm practices, and make the bets of your animal sensor:

  • Automated filters to save manual labor - Filter out animals following group changes, pregnancy checks, and hoof-trimming to avoid false alerts - by manager’s choice
  • Adaptation to work protocols - Flexibly adapt to versatile work protocols e.g. multiple breeding, single breeding, ov-sync, and more

Durable and Reliable

As reliable as it gets - leverage 40 years of experience, placing sensors on millions of cows and heifers:

Mechanical design that is made to last
When you buy AfiAct II you enjoy Afimilk’s 40 years of experience, providing leg sensors to millions of cows and heifers in a huge verity of farm types. AfiAct II rock-solid mechanical design is exactly what it takes to whether

Don’t let the simple and smooth design fool you. Under the hood, AfiAct uses the most sophisticated motion detectors available, carefully designed to optimize the performance of the sensors, the antenna communication, and remote reading - while keeping the battery life running for years and years.

24/7 Wireless Tag Reading

24/7 wireless reading of the sensors, wherever the animals are

  • Using wireless communication, as long as the tags are in reading range - allowing you maximal management flexibility
  • You do not need to ensure animals will come to a reading station, solution for cows and heifers
  • The reader itself, connects to the farm WiFi - so it can be 20m or 1km away from the PC - easy to fit with your farm arrangement.

Heat detection - not only which animals to inseminate, but also when

The window of opportunity for insemination - when the inseminator comes you’d want the most updated heat detection list, possible. With AfiAct II wireless reading, the tags are being read every few minutes and the animals-for-insemination list is always updated.

Furthermore: monitoring the timing of the heat development, AfiAct II is a powerful tool to optimize the timing of the insemination of each animal, improve the conception chances and increase the farm’s pregnancy rate.

Mobile Apps

Afi2Go Pro: Focused mobile app for the mobile manager

Afi2Go Pro mobile app frees you to work with the animals and saves you the need to return to the office in order to type in treatment data. Use Afi2Go for:

  • Animal info - search an animal by typing her number or use an RFID (Bluetooth) wand

How it works and what makes us better

Patented Unique Technology

Patented, Unique Technology - Provides Unmatched Heat Detection and Health Monitoring

Silent Herdsman Collar is the only one of it’s kind that uses 3D Accelerometer to effectively monitor different patterns of motion pattern: Chewing/Licking, Ruminating, and Full Body Activity.

Why would you care how it works? Because this is how, this sensor provides dramatically higher accuracy than other collars.

Heat Detection

Heat detection that stands out:

Silent Herdsman collar provides 95% sensitivity of detection, special algorithm to optimize for cows and heifer which behave differently, as well as closed barns vs. grazing regimes. For fertility management the system will list down:

  • Heat detection / Animals for insemination
  • Non-cycling cows and Repeatedly cycling
  • Administrative lists: Due heat and PD check

Monitor Animal Health

3 sensors in a single package - unique tool for health monitoring

Rumination is a sensitive and early indicator for health issues. The problem, is that other reasons may cause drop in rumination, and therefore it is highly susceptive to false alarms. Because we are combining the Rumination, Chewing, and Activity detection we can tell which is which and alert you on the cows with real health problem.

  • Ecoli mastitis
  • Ketosis / Acidosis
  • Rumen problems
  • Feet problems
  • Pneumonia
  • Cystic cows
