Calf Detector Signals Delivery Time
You'll never miss another calving with this new "calf detector" radio transmitter that mounts on a cow's rear end and is triggered when the cow raises her tail at the onset of labor.

"When the cow raises her tail for 3 min., the transmitter emits a 10-sec. signal, then shuts itself off. If the tail is still up 3 min. later, it again emits a 10 sec. signal. The signal is received by a pocket-sized belt receiver which sets off an alarm," explains James Baker, distributor of the new "Calf-Call".

The solid state transmitter and the switch tied to the cow's tail attach securely to the animal with adjustable flexible straps that tie to the cow's front and rear legs.

The range of the transmitter is about 1/3 of a mile, depending on the terrain and buildings. Antennas can be added to extend the signal up to a couple miles. One receiver can receive from several transmitters.

Cost for one transmitter and receiver is $795.
