We were recently contacted by a farmer just outside Millom in Cumbria enquiring about Calving Cameras as a solution to a problem he was having. The farmer lived a mile down the track from his farm. It was calving season and he was having to get up every few hours to go check on his cows. By the time he had done this he was wide awake so he wasn’t getting much sleep. He wanted know if there was some way of keeping an eye on the calving shed remotely.
Having to check on the cows every couple of hours was time consuming, exhausting for the farmer and expensive. If he lost a calf while he slept each calf potentially costing up to £800.
