Since joining Alta I immediately switched to the Alta COW WATCH collars and DairyComp. I have seen preg rates in the adult herd increase from 18% to 28%, and at the same time I have significantly reduced the use of sync programs, to be in line with my milk contract. The overall financial benefit that Alta has brought to the farm has been immense.”
