Remoting calving alert system for beef cattle

Several observational studies have found perinatal calf loss is a major contributor to decreased reproductive efficiency in northern beef herds.

What are we doing?

This project looks at the work required to develop a remote calving alert device for beef cattle.  The aim is to to build and evaluate  prototype devices under controlled laboratory conditions before selecting the most appropriate and efficient device to test under field conditions.
