The two leaders in the dairy farming ecosystem,  Israeli Afimilk and Wisconsin based ABS global, a division of Genus plc., are teaming up to market the next generation of automatic heat detection solutions, AfiAct II.

The most accurate system of its type, AfiAct II uses long-range radio to collect behavior data anywhere on the farm – from herds of any size – and update results at short intervals. Highly scalable and adaptable, the system is available as a stand-alone solution, or integrated with Afimilk’s farm and milking parlor management system. AfiAct II is also web-accessible on any type of device.
Already, with the AfiAct heat detection system, U.S. customers are achieving pregnancy rates above 25 percent. Operating wirelessly, AfiAct II reduces open days and operating costs, resulting in savings of $100-$150 per cow, per lactation.
Afimilk, owned by Kibbutz Afikim and Fortissimo Capital Investment Fund , is the world leader in the dairy industry technologies and sheep. The company was the first to develop electronic milk meter . The company’s flagship products : Afilab – analysis of milk components during milking and early detection of problems, pedometer plus – track changes in habits of movement and rest of the cows , and the dairy management system AfiFarm . The AfiMilk systems operate from 50 countries on five continents.

Recently, the company launched its next-generation solution for heat detection. As part of this collaboration, ABS will further extend its portfolio of reproduction offerings by introducing the AfiAct II system to customers in the U.S. and Canada.

ABS Global is the world‐leading provider of bovine genetics, reproduction services, technologies and uddercare products. Marketing in more than 80 countries around the globe, ABS has been at the forefront of animal genetics and technology since its founding in 1941.
