The physiological condition of any animal is reflected in the components of its body fluids, such as milk in a dairy cow. Using an optic sensor, we can measure milk composition (fat, protein, lactose and blood) for each cow during every milking.

Research published by Kaim et al from Israel’s Volcani Institute of Agricultural Research in June 2011 showed very high efficiency (89.2%) and accuracy (88.5%) of estrus detection with the AfiAct system, even in Israel’s unfavorably hot conditions.
Afimilk’s effective calving alert service AfiAct II’s calving alert service is using 24/7 cow behavior monitoring analyzed by advanced algorithms implemented in the AfiFarm management software. As a result, it provides alerts with high accuracy (typically, the actual calving takes place within 4 hours from the received alert).

The Afimilk heat detection system reduces an average of 20-25 open days on most farms. At $5 per day, this means a yearly savings could hit the $100-150 mark per cow. The system also saves roughly half a day to a full day of labor per employee, for each group of 100 cows. These benefits make for a ROI of only 1.5 years (often far less) for most farms.
