Tail Paint

Accurately determining when a cow is on heat ensures a more successful mating period, providing a higher insemination rate and ultimately pregnancy rate.

Tail paint gives a visual indication of when a cow has stood to be mounted and consequently rubbed, showing that she is in heat. The duration of estrous activity is between 6 and 24 hours, while the period when the cow stands to be mounted lasts, on average, less than 8 hours.

Tail paint gives a visual indication of when a cow has stood to be mounted and consequently rubbed, showing that she is in heat.

Our range consists of two trusted formulations an oil-based solution for all weather conditions and a water-based that is gentler on severely rubbed cows. Both formulations have a range of application methods to suit your farming operation.
