Best investment you could ever make. The system is generally paid for on the very first calf you save.
What I really like about camera surveillance is that you don't have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to do calving checks. You only get out of bed to do an actual calving.
And, you don't disrupt a calving or intervene until the time is right to do so. On a cold, still winter night the cows can hear your footsteps crunching in the snow long before you arrive. That's when they will often jump up and just stand there.
It's also a great tool to observe newborn calves nursing....or not nursing. Excellent way to keep an eye on inexperienced 2 year olds that need that extra time to bond and accept a calf etc.

One thing that is truly amazing.....and that's how active cows are during the night hours. You can check the monitor every hour and it's never the same scene. Cows are constantly moving around it seems.
On the really cold nights you have a much better chance of reducing frozen ears and hypothermia also. A camera system saves wear and tear and everyone including the cows and calves.

Our system is online....meaning I can view a live video stream in colour on my iphone laptop from anywhere in the world. I was in Europe last year and watched a cow in my pen calve from St. Peter's Square in Rome while I ate lunch.
