Cow Cameras & Calving Cameras

Calving and foaling season are a busy time for farmers. For a long time farmers have spent anxious nights waiting and sleeping in barns waiting for new arrivals. However, video surveillance cameras and cow cameras are helping to make monitoring pregnant animals much easier.

Since complications during birthing can happen suddenly and result in the deaths of the mother and/or the calf/foal, farmers must closely monitor animals when they are near to giving birth. In fact, the USDA found that nearly 18 percent of all non-predator deaths for calves was a result of calving-related problems.

A cow can be worth several thousands of dollars and can be a big loss if there are birth complications with the calf, the cow or both,” Valyear explained. “Horses are a whole other ball game. We had one client that has a new colt he sold for CAD$250,000. You can imagine the loss there.”

With cameras able to keep an eye out 24/7, video surveillance allows farmers to watch animals from a distance, also allowing them to act faster in the event something happens. For example, during the calving season you can save calves and cows in time if difficult deliveries occur.

The ability to monitor livestock anytime, anywhere right at the palm of your hand is another great reason to invest in a good livestock monitoring camera system.

We boast a variety of cow cameras and livestock cameras to fit every budget.

“It’s awesome! being able to see the cows are well and that production evolves as planned. We’ve been using the Country Guard calving and livestock monitoring cameras for five years, and now when we look back it is hard to imagine how we managed before without having it… “

James T, Sturgeon County, AB

“I simply open the app on my our smartphone, and right away I am in my cowshed to check if something has gone wrong and allow me to immediately intervene. The system is invaluable in this kind of tough business where any anomaly will affect the bottom line.”

JoAnne C, Camrose County, AB

We breed pigs and grow crops, and With so many different things going on, it is important to keep track of everything that happens. This is why we have installed Country Guard’s Cameras ca in the yard. You simply can’t be everywhere at the same time, but because we can now keep track of everything via our mobile phones we feel much more secure, and we don’t have to go out as often in minus 40 temperatures.”
